An exquisite Oolong from the Dong Ding mountains of Taiwan. This hand-picked tea is said to be the descendant of ancient Chinese tea bushes. Dong Ding has a beautiful complex aroma and is particularly well-liked among coffee enthusiasts. Its name can be translated literally as “Climb to the mountain with cold feet”. The oxidisation of this tea can occur in one of two ways: By machine, or by charcoal. Typically, it is only 30% oxidised. Naturally sweet, strong and captivating, this versatile full-bodied, and refreshing Oolong is simply delicious!
