Dong Ding Hong Bei Wulong Cha (Dong Ding Roasted Oolong Tea)
Chen Fang Yan
The winter 2016 roasted Dong Ding is slightly lighter in color than the spring tea yet it fully displays the classic, rich nose expected from tea of this region. The color is a rich amber hue and the nose is redolent with the aromas of a forest in the fall. This tea coats the mouth and finishes long in the throat. This tea can be steeped and resteeped many times.
