Description

Dong Ding Oolong Tea is a speciality of Taiwan, originating in the Dong Ding Mountain area of Nantou county. The tea leaves are carefully handpicked by workers before being processed with traditional methods to bring out their distinctive flavour. Dong Ding Oolong Tea has a softer, rounder taste than many other teas, and it is especially popular due to its unique aroma.

Often referred to as “butterfly oolong” or “frosty peak oolong” due to its light, sweet flavour and enchanting fragrance. It's velvety taste pairs perfectly with any meal and can be enjoyed by tea connoisseurs and novices alike.

Once hand-picked, then withered and gently oxidised. Its unique flavour comes from roasting the leaves over charcoal in a large wok, which gives it a slightly smoky undertone.

About Dong Ding Oolong Tea from Taiwan

Named after the majestic heights of a mountain in its homeland, Dong Ding tea is known as 'Frozen Peak' - an emblematic representation of its traditional origins and distinctive flavour.

As the demand for Dong Ding Oolong continues to soar, producers have turned to other areas of Taiwan where tea cultivation is possible in search of expanding production. Local farmers at Lugu Township within Nantou County are credited with crafting this highly sought-after oolong from Qing Xin cultivar that led to its rise in popularity worldwide.

How to Dong Ding Oolong Tea

To unlock Dong Ding Oolong Tea’s exquisite flavour, steep 1 teaspoon of the tea leaves in hot water at 95 to 100 degrees celsius for 3-4 minutes.

Best enjoyed without milk or sugar to appreciate its unique taste.

It is important not to over-brew Dong Ding Oolong, as there is a risk of bitterness if it is left too long in the water. It can also be enjoyed cold and makes a refreshing beverage on hot summer days

For those who are new to Dong Ding Oolong Tea, it's recommended to start with a light brew and adjust according to preference.

Dong Ding Oolong Tea Health Benefits

Dong Ding Oolong tea is a rich source of antioxidants and polyphenols, two essential compounds that can help your body fight free radicals. It has also been linked to lower cholesterol levels, improved immune system health and even weight loss.

Dong Ding oolong contains caffeine but at much lower levels than coffee, so it is a great alternative for those who wish to reduce their daily caffeine intake without sacrificing the benefits of tea

  2. Good range of items but loose leaf teas just don't taste as fresh as they could be. I also think they should grind their espresso a little finer to allow more flavour to come out.
