Formosa Dong Ding Oolong An Almost Green Oolong Tea Fantastic Rare with a Delightful Aroma


  • Dong Ding (凍頂), also spelled Tung Ting, is an oolong tea from the eponymous mountain in Taiwan.
  • It is said the original tea plants were brought from China’s Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province and planted on Dong Ding mountainside.
  • Dong Ding is in the Lugu region of Nantou County in central Taiwan, an area long  used for tea cultivation.
  • Dong Ding Oolong is typically medium oxidized about 30% making it quite like a slightly fermented green tea.
  • Dong Ding is still hand harvested and prepared by hand rolling.
  • Oolong tea is best savoured on its own with little or no embellishment, possibly a small slice of sweet orange.
  • The aroma of the dried leaves is remarkably fresh smelling and reminds me of something pleasant from my childhood, unfortunately, I can’t recall what, but it is a comforting smell.
  • You will receive 30 grams of tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make 15 cups of tea. Two grams per cup, this can even be re-infused, giving twice as many cups. This works out at less than thirty four pence per cup, a small price to pay for something so beautiful.
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout.
