From Tillerman Tea

This tea is made by my Laoshi, the man who first taught me about Taiwanese tea. It is a rich tea with a persistent finish that will please any who enjoy an expertly roasted tea. Highly recommended.

This is the second Dong Ding produced by Chen Huan Tang, my teacher in Taiwan, that I have included in Tillerman’s selection; the Winter 2018 was extremely popular and I was continually running out of stock.. The dry leaf is loosely rolled and a deep dark color. The wet leaf is deep, dark green color with clear signs of oxidation around the perimeter of each leaf in a set. The brew is a rich, limpid amber hue.The charcoal aroma is less immediate than in the Winter version; it comes on slowly and then persists throughout the brewing of this tea. In the mouth the tea seems less robust than the Winter tea but it too is cleanly structured with appropriate acidity in the lower palate. The length of the tea is pronounced and the finish persists for a very long time. This is high quality tea that will yield multiple infusions at each session. Highly recommended for those who enjoy an expertly roasted tea.

Brewing Suggestions:
To prepare this tea in the traditional gongfu style use a gaiwan or Yixing pot and 6 grams of tea per 100ml of water at 212°F (100° C). Steep for 30 seconds. Reduce time to 25 seconds for the second steep and then increase with each subsequent steep,

For an 8 oz cup, use between 3-5 grams of tea, about a heaping teaspoon. Pour water at 212°F (100° C) over the leaves and steep for approximately 90 seconds. Always remember to adjust steeping time depending on water temperature, amount of tea you have and personal flavor preference. Increase time and temperature slightly with each infusion.
