From Eco Cha

Flavor: Caramelized pecans aroma. Fruity, tangy, mild roasted flavor. Rich, complex aftertaste.

Garden: This batch of tea was cultivated on a family-run residential farm in the historical Dong Ding Oolong producing village of Yong Long in Lugu. A heritage farm run by father and son who have both been awarded first prize in the local tea competition in the last ten years. This batch received Second Place Category Award in the recent winter competition, ranking within the top 9% of over 800 entries.

Harvest: Hand-picked in small batches in Yonglong, Taiwan. Winter 2017.

Elevation: 700m

Tasting Notes: Dong Ding Oolong is a medium oxidized, medium roasted tea with a hearty, complex, and robust character.

The initial steeping brings forth a complex bouquet of toasted pecans , and a touch of smokiness. On the palate, you get roasted sweet corn, nutty/fruity notes, and a tangy, rich finish.

This batch of Dong Ding Oolong is representative of a traditionally made Oolong from the original source of this type of tea. It demonstrates the broad spectrum of character and flavors that can be captured by refined roasting techniques.

This is a great tea! The smokey caramel aromas after steeping fill the air and give a very comforting sensation. After a quick wash, the early steeps have a mildly smokey and roasted character with caramel flavors. There is a very mild bitterness and slight astringency that seems to coat the tongue with a floral sweetness that lingers after swallowing. Exhaling fills the senses with a floral honey. I can see why this tea is award winning. As the leaves open up, the smokiness fades and the tea starts to become similar to a Taiwanese high mountain oolong with less grassy notes and not as overwhelmingly floral. I think eco-cha’s description is spot on.

I started with a 10 second steep, then 15, 20, then up to 45 seconds.
