From Unknown

We picked up this heavy roast Dong Ding Oolong from a random tea shop in Taipei, Taiwan. It’s got those nutty flavors common to oolongs, but it was finished with an extra firing to roast the leaves. It is more reminiscent of older-style oolong production.

I don’t know that my unknown Dong Ding is related to the one described above, but it’s a sample from a teaSwap, and if I recall correctly, the swapper didn’t know much about it. But this is a lovely grand tea, a marvelous blend of the roasted, toasted, traditional style, but still full of the deep spicy flavor I associate with Alishan oolongs.

Nice stuff. I’d mostly dismissed Dong Ding, but this convinces me I need to keep exploring.

Can’t pu the time/temp slider on the phone: brewed to fill gaiwan about 2/3 full when hydrated, water 195 degrees, infusions 45 seconds to several minutes by the time i am ready to stop, perhaps 6 or 8 infusions into the session.

Very forgiving oolong. We used our small red Yixing teapot, and did four infusions. The leaves can probably handle one or two more before the flavor will fall off. Leaves a nice taste in the mouth long after you’ve put down the teacup.
