From Mountain Tea

The slow roasting of this tea gradually caramelizes its natural sugars and sweetens it, imparting notes of caramel, sweet roasted barley, and brown sugar.

Many of the names related to Taiwanese teas are tea-producing regions, tea-making styles, or both. Dong Ding is a tea gardening region in Nantou, Taiwan whose area name has become eponymous with its style of tea manufacturing. Dong Ding teas have a longer oxidization period and are also slowly baked at a high temperatures, with careful attention to how the flavors and aromas are changing throughout the baking process. The result is caramelized sweetness with a depth and complexity that literally makes your mouth water—it’s a phenomenon the Chinese call “Hui Gan.”

Other names: Tung Ting, 炭焙凍頂
Water: 95°C

Medium Roast Dong Ding from The Mountain Tea Company is Mmmmmmm delightful! Dong Ding Oolong is my all time favorite tea. This tea brings me back to everything I first loved about loose leaf tea.

I really love the lingering floral taste the tea leaves behind. Yes, even beneath all the roasting, the caramel notes, brown sugar notes, sweet barley, and woods, this lovely little spring of floral note comes out just barely gracing your palate. Its lovely!

Aroma of the leaves makes it very obvious these were roasted, as they smell of toasted grass to me. The wet leaves’ aroma reminds me in some way of popcorn, with their almost salty notes (maybe more caramel corn). The flavors are as advertised caramel sweetness with some floral undertones as well. Not only good gongfu style, but an awesome one for grandpa style on the go in a thermos. Just a few leaves at the bottom got me through a whole day :) A good one for a great price.
