Another package arrived and this time its Dong Ding! Its a first for me to experience Dong Ding and a quite a lovely tea this is! Its wonderful nutty, faintly citric, and vegetal character has a warm and savory demeanor . The aroma and the brewed liquor describes itself as freshly ground nuts much like flax that welcomes itself into the palate and after with its grassy, intense nutty and earthiness (akin to being roasted) that shares a similar profile to Chinese greens. There is a subtle youthfulness to this Dong Ding much like freshly cooked and juicy prickly pears that adds a wonderful aromatic quality that hints of freshness of a springs bounty. A wonderful crisp but smooth citric taste accents well with its subtle flowery notes much to a reminder of orange blossoms. Just outstanding!

I’m a tea lover and a traveler. I believe in delving into cultures and cuisines. In so doing, I have found tea to be the most exciting and adventurous beverage in the world that has played a role in history and in the lives of many. Now that’s a shrub isn’t it!
Note: I may be a purist at times where some teas needs to be enjoyed naturally, yet I do enjoy many other teas that find its way into my palate!

Favorite Teas: Yunnan teas, the staple Assam and some Darjeeling, love Japanese greens, and “indie” teas either home grown or unfamiliar regions i.e. Turkey, Georgia, love Tisanes, Oolongs, some white teas, and my favorite staple: Chai teas.
