Thanks to MissB for this surprise free sample! A Vietnamese tung ting/dong ding oolong sounds really interesting.
I have to say I’m impressed by the quality of the leaf here. I pulled them out after steeping and they are almost all nice full leaves, with hardly any shredding on the edges. The scent of the brewed tea is nice and floral, with some sweet cream butter notes as well. The flavor is quite good; not too vegetal, but with some grounding leafy notes. Mostly sweet, with florals and a bit of butter. It’s definitely a sweeter, unroasted dong ding and not the slightly toasty variety. I am enjoying it quite a bit! Thanks so much for sending it along, MissB!
