Also known as Tung Ting Oolong or Frozen Summit Oolong, Dong Ding Oolong is one of Taiwan’s most famous teas. Its small, pellet-like rolled leaves produce an aromatic, lemon yellow brew with scents of gardenias, mulched grass and buttery vanilla pastries. The flavor of Dong Ding is true to the aroma, with the added complexity of toasted nuts, fresh cream and a slight astringency. A velvety mouthfeel transforms into a slightly drying finish with lasting flavors of honeydew, flowers and nuts. The second infusion is truly remarkable. It’s even smoother, creamier and more floral than the first. Later infusions reveal an enticing mineral edge and more honeyed flavors. Pair Dong Ding Oolong with simple, creamy foods, such as panna cotta or uniced vanilla cake dipped in warm cream.
