From Taiwan Tea Crafts

This is another TTC exclusive lot created by our Tea Master. The objective here was to highlight the sweet creamy character that has made Dong Ding style teas so popular around the world. To achieve this, a careful blend of organically grown Cui Yu T-13 and Jin Xuan T-12 teas was composed and tasted before baking to determine if the right characteristics were present to achieve the desired taste (not many tea masters will reveal that they do blend teas…). As the master would say: “You can’t turn bad tea into good tea by baking it. You need good tea to start with” Then, several rounds of low temperature slow bakings were performed over many, many hours (this is where the master is more discreet in giving details) resulting in this oh-so-smooth nectar that we are so proud to propose. A quick rinsing of these generous leaves with immediately release a custard-like, sweet, creamy aroma. The tongue will be pleasantly surprised by the supple, easy drinking texture with a slightly effervescent freshness that is quite pleasing and invites you to indulge with cup after cup of this perfect colder day soother. This is one TTC’s most popular teas and for a good reason. This year’s Lot 714 was made from a blend of Winter 2017 and Spring 2018 productions and baked one full season later in August to allow the tea to mellow and stabilize before baking. If you are at all familiar with our previous year’s offerings, you will not be disappointed.

Here’s quite a green looking dong ding. It is tasty, but not very complex. The dominant aromas are those of roasted cocoa beans, wood, stonefruit pits and peat. The taste is bitter and has hints of custard, coffee and acorn. I liked the aftertaste more. It’s long, cooling and tart with notes of sweetcorn and wood. Texture is decent too, the liquor has a soft, silky mouthfeel which thickens as the tea cools down.
