From thepuriTea

Like our Dong Ding Oolong, Roasted Dong Ding is a popular Taiwanese oolong for gong fu brewing. It has been roasted for a deeper, smoother flavor that trades some of its floral notes for richer, grainier tones. Its dark leaves offer robust aromas of roasted nuts and grains with a hint of toasted cumin seeds. The copper-tinged golden brew smells roasty and sweet, like sobacha (a roasted barley tisane from Japan) with honey. Roasted Dong Ding’s flavor is strong, smooth and roasty. Notes of full-bodied Houjicha, honey sweetness, roasted barley and cashews, and vanilla are balanced with a light astringency. Later infusions are mellower, with a slightly greener oolong flavor. The finish is rich, lasting, toasty and smooth – ideal for pairing with dark sweets like pralines or tres leches cake.

Clear yellow-green color, slight nutty aroma, taste also had a hint of a grain, maybe rice.
Two steeps. Second steep slightly more astringent.
Edit: As the tea cools, the grain flavor becomes more pronounced. Definitly rice.

The leaves are dark green. Some are broken, they seem to have a jagged edge. Golden infusion. The aroma smells roasted is really all i can think of. There is just a bit of astringency on the tongue that you can feel tighten up ever so slightly. It has a lingering sweet aftertaste.

Smells like toasty sweetness and the taste reminds me of the bags of honey roasted peanuts I always buy whenever I go into the city. An enjoyable cup

I didn’t get cashews/nuts at all—it was all strongly roasted barley for me, and more so with further infusions. I much prefer the non-roasted dong ding for its sweeter, subtle taste. Maybe I’d like it sweetened…
