Leaf: Dark green half-spheres with red edges. Brew: Rich yellow, sweet scent with a hint of osmanthus flower and lingering aftertaste.
Scoop: Brought to Taiwan from Mainland China in the 1860's, Dong Ding (Tung Ting) was found to thrive on its eponymous mountain. The earthquake of 1999 left Dong Ding plantations untended, when rediscovered, the tea had a new, sweet flavor from cicada deposits. Dong Ding is now grown without pesticides.
Character: The young leaves and buds brew a pale greeny-golden cup that has a superb flavour and a subtle floral aroma. It is one of the finest green oolongs.
Brewing Tips: Brew 3g (0.l0oz) in 200ml (7fl oz) water at 85°C (185°F) for 1-2 minutes. Strain and add more water for several more short steepings.
