Tasting Notes
Dong Ding Oolong is a medium oxidized, medium-heavily roasted tea with a hearty, complex, and robust character.
The initial steeping brings forth a complex bouquet of roasted vegetables, pine, and a touch of smokiness. On the palate, you get roasted sweet corn, nutty/fruity notes, and a tangy, heady finish with just the right touch of astringency.
Eco-Cha’s 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 flavors that can be captured by refined roasting techniques.
Origin
This tea comes from Yonglong Village, just above Dong Ding Mountain, at 700m elevation in Lu Gu Township, Nantou County. It was cultivated and processed by a father and son team of award-winning tea makers. The father has been recruited among 5 elders in the community in a practical seminar to teach pre-modern methods of traditional Dong Dong Oolong tea making to the younger tea makers in the area.
This ridge above Dong Ding Mountain is home to the neighboring Yong Long and Feng Huang Villages and is known for a rich red soil, which differs from other locales in Lu Gu. The unique flavor of Dong Ding Oolong produced here is attributed to this soil quality, along with the fact that these villages are home to the highest population of the most skilled traditional oolong tea artisans in Taiwan.
