This is a very light dong ding and by light I mean it has no discernible roast to it whatsoever. It tastes closer to a green oolong like Li Shan than a typical Dong Ding. The aroma is floral with hints of toasted pecan and camphor but the taste is nearly indistinguishable from a gaoshan. There is a deep fruitiness to it, something like roasted stone fruit, and a flowery tingle as it fades in the mouth. The flavor doesn’t change much from steep to steep but remains strong and steady. I find that these less nuanced teas work well grandpa style. It’s a great tea to throw in your tumbler to take to work. It thickens and becomes sweeter once the leaves steep for a while.
Flavors: Flowers, Fruity
