From Teavivre

Origin: Lugu Village, Nantou, Taiwan.

Ingredients: one bud with two or three leaves

Harvest time: August 1, 2013

Taste: smooth and soft, full and profound flavor with sweet roasting taste.

This Moderately-Roasted Dong Ding Oolong Tea is made of the tea leaves from Qing Xin Oolong tea tree. By roasting the tea, this Dong Ding Oolong has thick and soft leaf, smooth and brisk tea liquid. Meanwhile the strong floral fragrance makes it taste rich. This is the reason that High Mountain tea is more excellent than low altitude tea. What’s more, this brings more opportunities for tea lovers to try different flavors.

I think I would have to say this is one of the best oolongs teas I’ve had!
The reason for this is I was able to get amazing flavor steep after steep. It was also my first time trying a roasted oolong.

wow….am I really the first to rate this??

ok…. no pressure or anything…

Ok well hot….it’s pretty strong in flavor…little spinach…vegetal?…but def smooth. Sort of a thick mouthfeel if that makes sense. It smells slightly sweet and floral. The main taste is that strong spinach leafy taste…but then it develops into more of a floral….

Letting it cool a bit more…

hmm….it’s allright…nothing too special. Maybe I’m just expecting more for some reason. It IS brisk tho.

Second steep. Less spinach taste but now it seems almost bitter. It’s odd.

It’s not a bad tea…but nothing I think I HAVE to have.

I’ll have to give it a couple more tries before I can rate it

This is a sample I picked up from Nicole_Martin at a meet-up a few months back. It’s okay, but a little too green for me—that floral oolong note is just a little too strong, and there’s not as much roastiness as I’d like. It’s a little bit sweet, more so than most oolongs I’ve had. This is a perfectly good tea; it’s just that the flavor profile doesn’t really match up with my oolong preferences.

Thank you to Teavivre for this sample!!
Delicious , slightly creamy and floral. I do catch a subtle amount of roastiness but it is moderate as the title says. There is also a cleansing astringency if you steep it longer. I thought three minutes was perfect and then I steeped the tea for one more minute and I wished I had stopped at three minutes but that’s why I like to taste at every minute when I am sampling so I learn!! :)
The aroma of this tea is smelling so lovely!!!!!!!!

Medium Oolong that is light amber in color and has a mild hay aroma. I taste the roasted flavor with a slight sweetness and a little bit of floral flavor at the end. This tea tastes pretty good but I am not the biggest fan of its aftertaste.
