From Tea Horse

A famous oolong of Taiwan with a sweet hint of peach.
What it is

A hand-made artisan oolong tea, medium-oxidised, rolled and roasted.
Where it’s from

Lugu village, grown on the slopes of Dong Ding (also known as Dung Ting or Frozen Summit) Mountain, Nantou County, Taiwan.
It’s story

Dong Ding is considered Taiwan’s most famous oolong tea and some say, it’s finest. It is made from the Chin Xin Oolong variety of the tea bush, which thrives in the weather conditions of Dong Ding Mountain, where the sun in the morning and a shroud of mist in the afternoon are ideal for producing excellent tea. Plucking takes place in each season but we’ve selected a deliciously full-bodied first harvest tea, which reflects the flavours of summer.
Why we chose it

We were completely over-whelmed by the loveliness of this tea we couldn’t help but choose it! Oolongs have a place in our heart at Tea Horse and we’re thrilled to be able to bring you this unbelievably tasty example.
What it tastes like

The pale yellow liquid of Dong Ding has a fantastically rich, full-bodied, lingering flavour. A lightly floral aroma gives way to a buttery, honey taste with gorgeous peach notes and a hint of light roasting adding a little nutty taste. Perfect to enjoy in warmer weather.
Drink it with

A refreshing tea, we drink it on its own throughout the day. Try pairing it with creamy, vanilla flavoured foods like panna cotta or simply tropical fruits.
How to make it

This tea is pretty flexible to brew. Use two teaspoons per cup, pour over freshly boiled or slightly cooled water and brew for two minutes. Subsequent infusions will bring out more flavours; brew for an extra minute each time. Alternatively if you enjoy it stronger, brew for up to five minutes.

Interesting!

At first…this sort of tasted like Hojicha…roasted and a bit green. Then…as I continued to sip I noticed the taste morph into a roasted sweet woodsy type taste…then…the peachy notes hit me, subtly…that is.

This is really special! It’s like Dong Ding with Super Powers or something!

I really like this!

OK, I realize this probably comes from hanging around 7-year-olds all week, but am I the only one who gets the giggles when I read “Dong Ding Oolong?”

TeaEqualsBliss

lol – Ummm…no…you are not the only one. I really have to catch myself sometimes…I want to call it Ding Dong…

Charisma

Azzrian

LOL Im guilty as well.

ashmanra

And Dong Ding is the same thing as Tung Ting, so how do they choose which to call it?

Bonnie

Sounds like a pastry with chocolate on it!

@Ashmanra: It is just like Long Jing, and Lung Ching being the same tea. It gets pretty confusing!

Wow. I just published my review of this on my blog and came here to comment as well. There is already a review here by TeaEqualsBliss my blog entry looks like a long version of what she wrote. Two separate reviews coming that close to each other is amazing. At least you should know what can expect with this one! http://theeverdayteablog.blogspot.com/2013/07/tea-horse-dong-ding-oolong.html

Sipdown!
Thanks to KS for sharing this tea with me. It’s mildly roasty & nutty, & although I didn’t really get any peach, I did get the floral quality of it.
