This light tea hails from the town of Logu nestled among the mountains of Nantou County in Taiwan. The tea trees in this part of Taiwan were first transplanted from the famous Wuyi Mountains in 1885. Yezi’s Dong Ding Oolong is brought to you by tea farmer Gao Xiu Chen, who takes great pride in bringing all-natural Dong Ding Oolong to the people of Taiwan and, indeed, the rest of the world.
The flavor of Dong Ding Oolong is pure and light with sugarcane sweetness balanced by a hint of bitterness. A perfect confluence of yin and yang, if you will—after one sip of this pure yellow brew, you’ll understand. The loose-leaf tea’s exquisite fragrance evokes visions of the first blossoms of gardenia and often compels the most pragmatic person to lapse into poetry. Its light taste and sublime aura make Dong Ding Oolong ideal for transitioning to a period of mindful activity after an afternoon meal.
The story of Taiwan is, in many ways, the story of the remarkably adaptive powers of tea. Farmers long ago brought tea trees to Taiwan from the Fujian province in mainland China. Since then, similarly enterprising artisans have continued to carry out innovative experiments to conjure delightful and uniquely Taiwanese tea.
In their efforts to achieve tea perfection, Taiwanese farmers were aided by the geography of the island itself. Taiwan is often thought to be made up entirely of low- lying coastal areas. However, the highest mountains in Asia east of Tibet bisect Taiwan neatly along the middle. This unusual combination of humid plains and cool mountains gives Taiwan a lush and diverse geography that helps its farmers give birth to an astonishing range of the world’s finest oolong teas.
Dong Ding Winter Peak Oolong Tea offers a nice balanced taste. Each brew is equally delicious. A great product from a great company!
This is one of 5 samples I've received from this new tea company and each one has been fabulous! The color is a beautiful amber hue. I tried the first cup with no sweetener added and enjoyed it, next cup added a few drops of stevia and that brought out more of the subtle flavors. I brewed western style with 212 degree water for about 1 min. steep time. I have been so impressed with this company and will be ordering again soon.
Oh my, this tea is delicious! The first brew color was a bit pale, but the second, third and fourth were wonderful. I think I didn't have my water temperature right for the first one. Make sure you get water heated up to 205-210F. This tea has an amazing creamy flavor and light sweetness. The color is beautiful yellow, just the way Taiwan oolongs should be. Love it!
Delicious, light, and a pretty light green color. Not strong and bitter, but very pleasant tasting. A nice tea for relaxation, I will be blogging on my tea blog about this company and tea. I highly recommend it! Very high grade, I love it.
By far, my favorite tea on this site. However, there were a large number of stems discovered once I sifted through the leaves after steeping (something I like to do to learn more about the quality of tea I just finished drinking). Having said that, I will buy this tea again based on the color, the number of undamaged full leafs and ultimately the flavor. Simply understand that you are not actually getting 2 ounces of tea for the price you pay with the number of stems you can expect from this product.
Taiwan "Jade" teas are my favorite, and this is the best I've ever had at any price. It has a great balance of floral fragrance and flavor, with a fantastic, juicy mouthfeel. Affordable enough to by my daily drinker at home and work. I've paid twice as much for Jades half as good. The stems are a bonus, as they give this tea its delicate, sugary sweetness. I brew 3.5 grams in a 150-ml. gaiwan, using filtered water that has just boiled, with the lid off for the first few steeps. 30 seconds for the first steep, adding another 15 seconds to each steep after that. This tea easily gives me 8 steepings.
