From IDEStea

Sweet fruity aroma and captivating after taste.

Dong Ding Oolong Tea (also known as Tung Ting) has a sweet fruity aroma with refreshing and captivating everlasting flavors. Our Dong Ding Oolong Tea is carefully hand-picked for the finest specimens of tea leaves from a mountainous region of Nantou, Taiwan. At the high elevation of above 4000 feet (1200 meters), the direct translation of the tea name is Frozen Summit. The cold temperatures of high altitude and misty Taiwanese weather make the oolong tea grow slower, allowing flavors to sip in stronger inside tea leaves. Once brewed, it has a rich golden color.

This was a nice Dong Ding. I’ve generally been leaning toward more roasted oolongs of late, but my fiance was not feeling great and wanted a greener tea. This fit the bill nicely. A pleasant, sweet tea to drink in these early spring days. This tea hit the spot for me a lot more than the one other tea I’ve tried so far from Ides through their tea club promotion. The leaf quality of the Dong Ding seems pretty high and they steeped well for many steeps. This is pretty good value for what they charge for it.

Unfortunately, I can’t continue my subscription at this time, due to an impending wedding, and the fact that they gave me SO MUCH TEA that I really can’t see myself needing to order any very soon.

Pleasant Dong Ding oolong. Took a bit longer to get started than I’m used to with Taiwanese oolongs, but that may have just been my bad. Started with some soft and sweet vegetal flavors, which also took on floral aspects after a few steeps. Some creaminess to the mouth feel but not all that much. Last few long steeps were pretty savory. Almost like steamed peas with sweet-ish floral aftertaste. Pretty good and inexpensive Taiwanese oolong. $17/75g I believe.
