Dong Ding Oolong Tea, Lot # 113
Here is another tea that showcases the roasting craftsmanship of our tea master. This exclusive lot has been given a new firing just recently (Oct. 25) to better highlight its character. A quick rinsing of the leaves will wake the wonderful roasted aromas which are both inquisitive and familiar with distinct caramel sweetness. A first infusion will reveal a deep nut brown liqueur which signals that we are in the presence of a deeper level of roasting. The taster might at first be surprised by the slightly dry attack but he will soon after be rewarded with a nice complex bitter-sweet, nutty, not too spicy, feeling that lingers long after swallowing. The liqueur has a good body and a nice thickness and is full of flavour. If you have a passion for dark chocolates, this is the equivalent to what your taste buds experience in liquid form. A more manly comparison would be to refer to the feeling of dipping your lips in a pint of draught Guinness (from the Dublin brewery, of course) for the creamy bitterness and molasses-like sweetness.
