This is easily one of the best Dong Ding Oolong teas I’ve tasted. Sweet – caramel-y sweet! The fruity tones are almost like dried fruit, like sugary sweet dried plums and raisins that have been reconstituted and then cooked down into a caramelized syrup. YUM.

The floral tones are not quite as pronounced throughout the sip, but, I notice them in the aftertaste, which is gently floral and sweet.

Very, very good. I think this may be my favorite from Peony Tea S thus far!

subsequent infusions produce a stronger floral note. Still sweet. A charcoal-y/roasty/toasty kind of flavor emerging also.

I seem to recall you reviewing Dong Ding Oolong and liking it as well for its fruity tones, I think?

Not all Dong Ding Oolongs are created equal, and I find different things each time I taste different ones, and judge them for their individual merits.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
