Dong Ding or Tung Ting
One of the most famous and finest Formosa Oolong is Dong Ding Oolong, also known as Tung Ting. The Dong Ding Oolong tea plants are actually a specimen of Wuyi strain that have been carefully selected and replanted in Taiwan, when politcal refugees fled Mainland China and settled onto Formasa. Dong Ding, is translated "Climb to mountain with cold feet".
Our high mountian Dong Ding Oolong grows in Nantou County Taiwan. It is gold amber in color and there are deep and resiny wood notes in the Aroma, with roasted grains, mesquite and pit fruit flavor. Sweet and roasty, with great depth and clarity. The tea is balanced, deep, and full of the rich toasty notes that Oolong teas are loved for, with the pleasing fragrance and body for which Taiwan teas are particular prized.
