Dong Ding Oolong

$18.00

Dong Ding is the name of the mountain located at the center of Taiwan called Nantou. The name of Dong Ding derived from a story: the path to the peak of the mountain used to be very slippery and climbers needed to conserve their strength on their toes to hike this mountain; in Chinese that is called “Dong Jiao Jian”.  150 years ago, this oolong cultivar was brought to Dong Ding Mountain from Wuyi, Fujian, China by a Nantou villager who participated in the imperial examinations held in Fujian (at that time, Taiwan was part of the Fujian Province). This Oolong is oxidized anywhere from 30%-40% and then heavily baked to yield a darker roast. As a result of this oxidation and baking process, the roasty and ripe fruity aromas start to evolve. This is a great tea for those looking to transition from coffee to tea.
