Product Description

The Origin of Dong Ding Oolong

Dongding Mountain is near Deer Valley in Taiwan. It often had fog in the early times, the road is muddy and the slope is relatively steep, the toe must be "frozen" (in Chinese called "dong") together when climbing the hill to avoid sliding down. The summit is called Dongding, and the foot of the hill is called Dongjiao, thus the tea in the mountain is called Dongding Oolong.

Dongding Oolong is lightly fermented, best known in Taiwan and honored as the "Holy tea product". It is from Dongding tea garden of the high altitude. Its annual production is limited, so it is especially precious. Dongding tea has a long history. Taiwan History wrote that Taiwan has a long history of producing tea. The old annals claimed that Shueishalian (now Puli in Nantou County, Sun Moon Lake, Shuili, Chushan,etc.) produced tea. The color is like sunglo, and it can also avoid malaria and hotness. So far, the tea coming from these five cities is sold in the market, Yet Dongding oolong is the best. However the yield is very small.

Oolong Tea from Mt.Dongding

The oolong tea from Mt. Dongding is produced in Mt. Dongding of Lugu Township, Nantou County, Taiwan Province. According to the legend, Lin Fengchi, a villager from Lugu Township of Nantou County, went to Fujian to take the imperial examination in 1855 [the fifth year during the reign of Xian Feng in the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911)]. He succeeded in the examination and returned to his hometown an official. He brought back with him 36 seedlings of Wuyi oolong tea trees, which were planted in Mt. Dongding and gradually developed into present-day Dongding tea garden. Though called Dongding (Freezing Summit), Mt. Dongding is green all the year round. It enjoys an annual average temperature of 20. Always covered with cloud and mist, it receives relatively short sunshine. With red soil and a natural environment as good as that of Mt. Wuyi, it is the ideal place for growing tea trees.

The Dongding Tea can be picked all the year round. However, its picking and making should meet strict requirements. The fresh leaves are improved buds and leaves such as that of Qingxin (Green Heart) Oolong. The spring tea is the most precious one and is known as "Leaves of Gold".

Slightly fermented, the Dongding Oolong Tea is a semisphere pouchong tea. The finished tea has a semisphere shape and is tight and even. It has a dark green and oily moist appearance, with slight golden color on the edge. The tea soup is golden, bright, and transparent, sending forth a strong flower scent and mature fruit scent. It tastes strong, mellow, and brisk, with a sweet aftertaste and an obvious baking flavor. The brewed tea leaves have red edge and light green middle part bearing grayish white spots like that on frog skin.
