Traditional Dong Ding
These days, there are a lot of lighter oolongs from Taiwan. Lighter oolongs are easier to brew, make and process. But as any older Taiwanese tea lover can tell you.. They dont have alot of depth. This tea is processed in the traditional way of old. With more roast en more oxidation than recent oolongs. This makes this tea have character and will satiate the grumpy old tea lover in all of us. Like they used to make it!
- Grandpa style:
- Leaves in a bowl:

Because the leaves are rolled into little balls. it is lovely to put a couple of them in a bowl and watch them unfurl. But this tea really loves to be brewed gong fu.
