Dong Ding Wulong Cha (Dong Ding Oolong Tea)
Chen Fang Yan
The 2016 winter Dong Ding has a mid-sized tightly rolled dry leaf that unfurls into two leaf sets. The tea liquor is green-gold in color. On the nose there are notes of spice, pine and sugar cane. In the mouth there is a sweet sensation that combines beautifully with the spice character to produce a long and satisfying finish.
