Brewing instructions
Description

Dong Ding Oolong Tea is one of our favourites to come from Taiwan. Workers handpick the leaves near the Dong Ding Mountain in Nantou county. When they arrive at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, we then hand-pack them fresh to order.

This ensures not only quality but also consistency with every cuppa brewed. Why not buy it and try it today?

Dong Ding Oolong Taste

Oolong is what some people might call, “the in-between Tea.” The reason is its processing, which involves semi-oxidation and a relatively short period of fermentation - in other words, the “halfway point” between Green and Black Tea.

This has a significant influence on its taste - one best described as smooth and grassy with subtle herbaceous undertones. You will almost certainly love it.

Formosa Oolong Tea History

No one knows how Oolong Tea came into existence, although it almost certainly took place in mainland China. The potential for a Formosa (present-day Taiwan) industry is a little clearer, starting with Dutch colonisation of the island.

Factors such as mass immigration from China, the Japanese occupation and the independence movement have all played a role in creating Dong Ding Oolong.

Dong Ding Oolong Tea Caffeine

The amount of Dong Ding Oolong caffeine you’ll find in your cup follows similar rules to its processing - and with good reason. What we mean is that, when those on the factory floor kickstart oxidation, it influences not only the taste but also the chemical compounds within.

In the case of caffeine, it is once again the middle-ground between Green and Black with approximately 35-mg per serving.

How to Brew Dong Ding Oolong Tea

1, Put Tea leaves into a Tea Infuser or Filter (both available here).

2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a mug or cup.

3, Boil fresh water and allow it to cool to temperatures between 80 and 90°C.

4, Dong Ding Oolong brewing times vary depending on personal preferences. However, we recommend infusing for 2 to 3 minutes. Any longer and you risk creating a bitter taste.

How to Serve: Best served without additions.

Tasting Notes: Imparts smooth, grassy notes with herbaceous hints.

Dong Ding Oolong Tea Benefits

Preliminary research suggests that Dong Ding Oolong Tea health benefits could improve bone mineral density and may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. This is because it contains high levels of magnesium and calcium.

These two beneficial components can aid bone health in several ways. Additionally, it can protect oral health by inhibiting the production of acid and bacteria in the mouth.
