Medium Roast Dong Ding – #06

While there is a certain craftsmanship that goes into creating all quality teas, the skill in producing this Medium Roast Dong Ding is undeniable. This Special Reserve is a single-source, Taiwanese tea, grown 1,400m above sea level.

Dong Ding Mountain, from which all Dong Ding teas take their name, also lends its name to a process and style of tea preparation. The golden ratio of fermentation to roast to which it owes its name is elusive and difficult to master with consistency.

Brewed at high temperatures the flavour of this tea is reminiscent of baking spices. At lower temperatures, notes of buttery sweet plums.

Standard western-style brewing Instructions –
