1 ounce makes 10-12 cups of hot tea, or 2 quarts of iced tea.

This Dong Ding Oolong is from the Chin Shin cultivar (also known as Qingxin) and is sometimes referred to as Tung Ting Oolong.  It is from Lugu in Nantou County, located in central Taiwan.  The medium roasted version is complex with a distinct creaminess, and the medium roast teases our caramel and toasted flavors.

Dong Ding Mountain (meaning Frozen Summit or Icy Peak) is one of the most famous oolong tea producing regions in Taiwan.  The area has the ideal climate and soil conditions for oolong tea cultivation and coupled with tea making traditions from tea masters renowned for excellence, this oolong is superb!

Brewing notes: If possible we highly recommend the gong fu brewing method using a small clay teapot.  Brew the tea at a temperature between 195-205° F for about 4-5 minutes. A first rinse of this tea is optional. Subsequent steeps can be shorter, approximately 2-3 minutes. Each serving can be brewed 4-5 times.  Using the gong fu method you’ll taste how the tea changes with each steep, allowing the flavors to develop as the tea opens up.

Ingredients: Oolong tea.

Packaging: Our loose teas are sold by the ounce and are packaged in food-grade resealable bags.

Brewing Instructions: Check out our Brewing Basics

Please note: this tea is a very limited edition.
