Sarah from the upstate store is down today to help out before Thanksgiving weekend. We made this in our Dragonhouse glass tumblers! (more of those are on the way, should be here next week!) Anyways, this Dong Ding is AMAZING. Roasted, sweet and fruity, it’s right up our alley. My father and I always get into a discussion about what aspects of oolongs we like the most. Sarah and I tend to like the darker, more roasted oolongs like DHP (Da Hong Pao), that have similar qualities to Pu-erhs and Lapsang. My father and his assistant Elvira on the other hand tend to prefer the lighter, more complex notes of floral, high mountain oolongs like Ali San and the lighter version of Dong Ding. Now we have a Dong Ding for him and a Dong Ding for me! YAY!
