Dong Ding oolong tea is grown around Dong Ding Mountain, a branch range of Phoenix Mountain in Nantou county, Taiwan. Dong Ding means "Frozen Summit." The altitude is 700-1000 meters. In Dong Ding Mountain grows a local tea cultivar called Qing-xin Oolong Cultivar, the main tea tree planted for making Dong Ding Oolong. Lugu town, the main producing area for Dong Ding Oolong, has annual average temperature of 22℃ and annual rainfall of 2200mm. The place has high atmospheric humidity and is always enshrouded in clouds and mists. The tea garden gets very strong sunshine in the morning, but completely covered by fog in the afternoon. Additionally, high altitude, dense forest and good soil create favorable growing conditions for tea trees. This environment causes the tea leaves to accumulate a lot of substances. That's the reason tea why tea produced at Dong Ding Mountain gives a very strong flavor and sweet after taste. You can easily recognize the difference once you've taste our tea.
The origin of Dong Ding tea dates back to 1841 when a scholar named Lin Feng Chi returned from China with a gift of 12 Qing Xin (Green Hearted) tea plants from the famous Wu Yi Mountain tea growing area in Fujian Province. He planted them on Dong Ding Mountain in Lugu Township, an area ideal for growing quality tea due to its cool, cloud and mist environment. The Lin tea farm has expanded since that time and is now managed by the 4th generation Lin family, who has inherited the traditional tea making techniques.

* Required Fields
Light Oolong that is pale green in color and has a steamed spinach and a faint floral aroma. This tea has a little bit over everything in its flavor, I get some floral, some fruitiness, a little steamed spinach flavor, and a tinge of butteriness. None of the flavors dominate the tea’s taste, but I like the way they work together.
Medium quality oolong, smooth and very delicate with a nice after taste.
My first Dong Ding oolong and it is very smooth. I have been using a 6oz yixing and following the steeping instructions listed on the webpage. It takes a few steeps to unroll but each one is different and you can taste the flavors coming out with. This is not a smokey oolong which is nice if you want a nice morning/summer oolong.
I love the tightly curled up leaves, their green color and the fine smell that comes out of them, you just need to breathe a bit of warm air onto them to wake them up. I steeped half the sample package with near-boiling water into a quite strong brew. The mouthfeel is slightly tart but the taste is sweet and creamy like most light oolongs. Right now it’s probably my favorite among the less expensive light oolongs from Teavivre because it has an interesting aromatic full taste to it. It’s well balanced in my mind, not too plain and with just a hint bitterness in stronger brews that contrasts nicely with the general sweetness. This tea has a great character.
This tea is the reason why I ended up on this website. I was once offered a sample, i soo loved it I went looking for it everywhere until I found this amazing site. I bought for myself, I drink it every day and wouldn't think of offering some to anyone!!
this was a new oolong for me and I really enjoyed it. Like many oolongs, I think it is best enjoyed by gaiwan, but is also very good cold brewed overnight
When I first sampled this tea I was amazed. Seriously smooth and fruity. Amazingly floral as well. Genuinely pleasant
I love this tea! It has a vibrantly fresh, green taste and an amber colour. Unlike green teas, which have grassy notes, this fine oolong is full of floral ones. It is appealing in every regard.
This is really good! It’s strongly vegetal, but also very sweet. It’s almost creamy and buttery, although I didn’t expect that at all. Each sip is refreshing and light. Beautiful. I’ve been sampling a lot of Teavivre’s oolong’s lately, this one is my favourite so far!
This is a very pleasant oolong. It is lightly floral. There is definitely a naturally fruity taste. Reminds me of stone fruits, apricots, peaches. I think the flavours are more subtle with a shorter steeping time, but still much easier to distinguish than a longer steeping time. A longer steep time gave a stronger and thicker tea, but some flavours overpowered others.
Reply: For the Oolong Tea, among the Oolong Teas now we have, we recommend 100ºC except the Oriental Beauty (Bai Hao) Oolong Tea which we recommend 85ºC. Because the Oriental Beauty (Bai Hao) Oolong Tea contains Tea leaves and Tea buds covered in white tips, it is tender and need lower temperature than other Oolongs which are most whole Tea leaves. Of course, it is not so strictly to use 100ºC, but we recommend temperature higher than 90ºC and 100ºC is best for most Oolongs.
Reply: Hello Hannah, this Dong Ding Oolong is one of the greener, more floral one. It is a great choice for people who like lighter taste with natural floral aroma.
