Description

Dong Ding is one of the original oolongs, produced in the mountains in the middle of Taiwan. Tea makers have cultivated Dong Ding around the town of Luku in the foothills of Taiwan's central mountain range since the mid-1800s. They followed their cousins' production methods in southern Fujian Province and roll the large tea leaves into a ball. This is one we have sourced over the years, and it is a lightly roasted oolong with pleasant lemon and vegetal flavors. This year, we visited Mr. Shen and enjoyed the 2024 production.

Ingredients
