From TeaSpring

One of the most famous and finest Formosa Oolong is Dong Ding Oolong. The leaves of this tea are carefully hand-picked from Mount Dong Ding in Taiwan. It is believed that Dong Ding Oolong tea plants are actually a specimen of Wuyi strain that have been carefully selected and re-planted in Taiwan. As with most Taiwanese Oolongs, the frangrance and taste of this tea is wonderfully sweet and will leave you craving for more.

Taste:
The naturally sweet, fruity aroma is strong and captivating, while the taste is full-bodied, refreshing and sweet with a flavor that is reminiscent of a mouth-watering peach. Delicious.

Appearance:
Evenly and tightly rolled tea leaves. The infusion is yellowish green in color.

This is SO good. Dong Ding Oolong teas are one of those teas that I don’t think much about when ordering (usually, when shopping for Oolong, I’m shopping for Ali Shan), but, on the rare occasions when I do have one, it certainly is a treasured moment.

The early infusions start off pale in flavor, but after allowing a moment for the tea to settle into the palate, the flavors really came out. I tasted subtle nutty tones … sometimes that of a raw nut, and sometimes, it was more of a toasted, sweet nut, as well as hints of flower within the sip. The sip is far less vegetative than the aroma would have suggested to me. In later infusions, the flavor intensified, bringing forth stronger floral tones, sweetness that is almost like honey, and hints toward creaminess. There was also a fruit tone that was emerging, a tangy fruit, reminding me somewhat of a tart apple.

A very pleasant Oolong. I think I shall have to visit TeaSpring’s website soon and shop!

The name is most amusing Dong, Ding, or ding, dong ;-); I am actually not well today. Anyhow, after laughter cease, I viewed the picture up close and noted the tightly rolled leaves. I recognize this process. I will add this to my shopping list. Might you tell me which is it…toasted nut, sweet nut? and as far as tangy fruit why not that of a pineapple?
Sorry, I think I am having fun at your expense, but mine possibly or someone closer.

Tea was tightly rolled and expanded nicely to full leaves. Leaves are fairly green and somewhat smooth. Steeps to a light yellow.

Aroma is light. I’ve smelled this before but can’t really pin down the aroma, maybe its “nutty.” Taste is light, not at all bitter, and subtle. This is a bit green in flavor too. Gonna start it a bit under the jade tie guan yin, from teaspring as well, in my rating and see how it goes from there.

I don’t know if I’m steeping this wrong but I can’t seem to get much taste out of it. The aroma is wonderful but the taste is somewhat lacking. Either way it’s well worth a try and I may just have to adjust my tasting buds to the subtleness of oolong teas.
