Crisp, fruity and clean-tasting: these are the hallmarks of our premium Dongding Oolong.
Dongding is one of Taiwan’s–and one of our–favourite oolongs. It takes great skill and knowledge to process oolong tea, and the people of Lugu Village on Dongding Mountain produce this fine, lightly oxidised and slightly bitter tea just as they have for several generations.
Place of Origin
Dongding Mountain, Lugu Village, Nantou, Taiwan
Dry storage at all times (like all our loose-leaf teas, it comes in a heat-sealed, zip-lock bag to maintain freshness. BPA-free)
Brewing & Enjoying
This tea can be brewed up to five times, each time at 85-95 degrees Celsius.
Try 4-5 grams per 100 ml of water for a strong brew, about half as many leaves for a light brew. It all comes down to what strength you prefer.
The first brew can be 60 to 90 seconds. This allows the leaves to unfurl and provide optimum flavour.
Brews two and three may be shorter–try 20 and 40 seconds.
For brews four and five, try one to two minutes.
PS: You can cold-brew Dongding as a delicious refreshment on a hot day.
This tea is perfect for vegans or those that crave a creamy warm texture to their teas. It's a perfect middle path for me because I generally don't enjoy green teas. It's like a perfect marriage between a green tea and a black tea. The flavours seem to intensify on a second or third infusion of the tea leaves.
We're very glad you enjoy the Jinxuan oolong, Misbah.
I recently bought this via special order.The earthy aroma and complexity of flavour is something I've never tasted before in a tea.Just magnificent.
It is indeed a wonderful tea. Thanks for the glowing review Konrad!
This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried
Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!
Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.
This tea has a fabulous earthiness and funkiness. But really it's like a wine that needs to be cellared for a few years. Good Puer aged for a few years is tea like no other. The roasted earthy notes will intensify and soften over time.
The Bordeaux of teas...Love that description
