This was from an old Sips by box and has just been lingering for a little bit. Maybe because I always feel a bit pressured to steep straight oolongs gongfu style. Well too bad, oolong, it’s Western style for you! XD
This makes for a very pleasant evening tea. I’ve enjoyed dong ding in the past because I found it a bit more vegetal and less floral than high mountain varieties. This tea has a nice silky smooth texture and very light leafy vegetal flavor. I do taste some of the peach and light floral notes that I find in Li Shan and Ali Shan, and a fair bit of creaminess.
Green oolong is never my favorite, as it tends to veer too floral. But that doesn’t mean I’m not enjoying this cuppa! It’s just not something I would feel the need to keep in my cupboard.
