Tian Xiang Dong Ding Wulong Cha (“Sweet Scent” Dong Ding Oolong Tea)

Chen Kuan Lin (Andy)

The 2019 Winter “Sweet Scent” Dong Ding has a mid-sized rolled dry leaf that unfurls into single leaves and two and three leaf sets. The tea liquor is a light tawny hue. On the nose there are notes of spice, pine and sugar cane as well as distinctive light charcoal aromas. This “Sweet Scent” Dong Ding is a little less roasted than the Spring version. The tea unfolds gently in the mouth and exhibits a sweet sensation that combines beautifully with the spice character to produce a long and satisfying finish. I view this tea as representing the best “value” in Tillerman’s selection.

Brewing Suggestions:

To prepare this tea in the traditional gongfu style use a gaiwan or Yixing pot and 6 grams of tea per 100ml of water at 212°F (100° C). Steep for 25 seconds. Reduce time to 20 seconds for the second steep and then increase with each subsequent steep,

For an 8 oz cup, use between 3-5 grams of tea, about a heaping teaspoon. Pour water at 212°F (100° C) over the leaves and steep for approximately 90 seconds. 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.

    This is a very nice tea for the price. On a first steep I might get slight hints of honey and baked peaches, while subsequent steeps bring out more spice and tree sap. There is a playfulness between the sweetness and roasted sensation that keeps this tea interesting (and this tea is good for many steeps). If the price were higher I might have been slightly disappointed, but as it is I was pleasantly surprised.
