I’m in the process of a photo set that involves me drinking white, yellow, green, oolong, black(red), pu, and hei… This Dong Ding was definitely a well needed treat in the middle of this process. It’s such a complex tea. There are most likely words in the English language that can describe it, however, the rhythm of the tea makes that task difficult. It’s a very warming tea because of the level of roasting that it goes through. However, those distinctive floral Dong Ding notes are definitely present. All around a perfect tea to take a break with.

I joined Steepster back in August of 2009. Since then, I have been lurking around shyly and taken it all in. Just recently, I decided to log all of the teas that I have in my cupboard and from there I decided to be a bit more active on the site!

I’m addicted to four things: Tea, wolves, indie perfume, and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

My favorite teas right now: Ming Hong and Halmonicha

Broadly speaking I also love: Most Chinese red teas, most Fujian oolongs, and balhyochas.

I’ve been drinking loose-leaf teas since childhood. I love everything from tieguanyin to gyokuro to a good British cuppa. I am looking forward to trying every tea type out there and building an extensive pu-erh library.
