What Is Dong-Ding Oolong Tea?

A translation of Dong Ding is “Frozen Summit” or “Icy Peak”, and is the name of the mountain in Taiwan where the tea cultivated. The mountain located in the Lugu region of Nantou County in central Taiwan.

Dong Ding is typically composed of 3-4 leaves, sometimes including a bud and mostly picked by hand. Afterwards, the tea undergoes a withering process, either outside, indoors, or a combination of both. After that, the leaves tossed and bruised on large bamboo baskets, which begins the oxidation process. Final rolling undertook either by hand or by machine. Consequently, a final firing sets the oxidation typically somewhere between 15%-30% oxidation, sometimes over charcoal. As a result of the complex process, it gives the tea toasty, woody and fruity notes. (Wikipedia).
