Dong Ding Oolong is different than any other oolong I’ve tried so far. At first sip, there’s s a pleasant, vegetal flavor that develops into a rich, roasted grain essence. The body is full and nicely astringent. The finish is lingering with a sweet, delicate floral note.

This was my first exposure to a medium roasted oolong and I quite liked it.

A ding dong moment with Dong Ding! I enjoyed my first one too. The subtleties of oolong tea still amaze me.

Teawing, I enjoyed this Dong Ding Oolong but I’d also like to try one that isn’t roasted to see if I might taste more of the creamy flavor.

Kashyap, I did my research :) Tung Ting translates to frozen summit if I remember correctly, but Dong Ding is infinitely more fun to say. Hehehe…

I have one from the puritea that isn’t roasted. I’ll send it in the next package. :)

you are correct…the legend behind frozen summit is a fav. as well it feeds into a similarity with Big Red Robe

There she goes, spreading tea joy to one and all… :)

QuiltGuppy, you are crazy lady! The best possible type of crazy… but still crazy.

Kashyap, now I have homework to do! I need to find out what the heck this Big Red Robe thing is.

teawing, if we were tracking a disease pattern QuiltGuppy would be Subject X. She has given us all so much and her generosity is contagious :)

Bio

I’m an animal loving vegan foodie, and a card carrying tea fanatic! Didn’t you get your card?

I typically drink my black tea with a splash of almond or coconut cream and a dash of turbinado sugar or stevia. My green teas I typically drink straight, and the same goes for most of my other teas with an occasional exception. I live on the edge!

Please check out my website Cookin’ Vegan at www.cookinvegan.com if you’re hungry.

I’m also a bit of a knitwit. I have an Etsy shop where I sell pretty little knitted and knitting accessories called Baubles 4 Knitwits at www.Baubles4Knitwits.etsy.com.
