  • Dark Roasted/Deep Fired High Mountain DongDing Oolong

Dark Roasted High Mountain Oolong - Dong Ding


Product Description


One of the most famous and finest TaiWan Oolong is Dong Ding Oolong. Grown at 1600 meters mountain in the Nantou area. The mountain is always fog covered, beautiful mountain full of tall thick bamboo groves and gingko trees grown for sustainable farming.

This is a strongly roasted oolong, today it is difficult to find a tea roasted by charcoal in the traditional way, it is a hard job and request lots of experience to running the roasted well. The process is performed by tea master Mr. Lin, using charcoal made from longan fruit wood, using the thick ash layer over the charcoal to control temperature, and the aroma and appearance of the tea determines roasting time. The modern methods employ convection roasters with temperature and time settings.

The charcoal roasted developed a full, rich and amber color steep with solid notes of cinnamon, hint of sweet caramel and chocolate flavor. This Oolong is ideal for those who prefer a more roasted aroma, but do not want bitterness or astringency.

Steeping Time: We suggest that you rinse your tea leaves before enjoying them, simply add water to the leaves and discard. This wakes them up and they are ready to go. For your first steep, we suggest a 30-50 second steep. For the second steep 10 seconds is best, simply add 5 seconds to each of your next steeps. This will allow you to experience the full range of tastes the leaves have to offer.
