drank Dong Ding Oolong by Houe of Cha'
807 tasting notes

This is my first Dong Ding Oolong so I can’t compare it to others but I can say that I am enjoying it. It is earthy, vegetal, and even a little what I call “skunky” but for me that is not a bad thing at all. There is a zing or a ting feeling on the tongue and it is very light not as in tea strength but just as in fresh tasting. I really love this one and hope to experience more Dong Dings so I can adjust my rating score if needed when I have more knowledge of this tea. I really wanted some matcha tonight after having it for the first time ever at House of Cha’ yesterday. I really wish I had purchased some there but ended up ordering on line tonight. The reason I decided tonight to drink this Oolong is because I wanted that earthy natural flavor. While this is not matcha of course and is not exactly what I was craving it has satisfied me enough and will probably be gone by the time my matcha order arrives! I am hopeful that the matcha I ordered from enjoyingtea.com is as good as the matcha I had at House of Cha’ – it was REALLY REALLY GOOD! But it was also my first time with Matcha. I could go back to Lawrence and get the matcha at House of Cha’ but it is pretty pricy! I will have to wait until a payday to go get that.
Anyway back to this tea … lol … I am happy that I bought this Dong Ding Oolong – it is very satisfying and I will probably buy this again – but will try from another tea company first just so I get more knowledge.

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/

I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
