Dong Ding Wulong Cha (Dong Ding Oolong Tea)
Chen Fang Yan
Dong Ding is perhaps the most widely recognized tea area in Taiwan. It is said that in the ‘70s there was more Dong Ding sold in Taiwan than was grown there; probably true! Fortunately, we deal directly with the grower, Chen Fang Yan. This is a lightly oxidized version of the Nantou classic. It is wonderfully fragrant with rich mouth feel and lingering cinnamon notes.

Always remember to adjust steeping time depending on water temperature, amount of tea you have and personal flavor preference. Increase time and temperature slightly with each infusion.
