Tips for Tea Connoisseurs
Our Traditional Roasted Dong Ding, made from tea leaves of the precious Qin Xin cultivar, which is traditionally used to make classical Dong Ding oolong tea, has been carefully processed and meticulously roasted to produce a classical roasted dong ding oolong tea. Thanks to Mr. Li's meticulous and carefully controlled roasting technique, traditional roasting hasn't covered up the refreshing and sweet summer rose and sweet yet crisp, white peach flavour of this sublime Dong Ding oolong.
The history of Dong Ding oolong tea dates back to late 19th century, when a young student Lin Feng Chi returned from China to Lugu Township, Nantou County with 12 Qing Xin tea plants from Wuyi mountain in Fujian Province. He then cultivated them on Dong Ding Mountain (aka. "Frozen Summits") in Lugu Township, from which the tea has been named. Combining the unique terroir, low level of oxidation and medium to heavy roasting technique, Dong Ding oolong tea has now become one of the iconic Taiwanese oolong teas.
As with all the teas, oolong tea also offers us health benefits to increase our sense of well-being. Several studies indicate that oolong tea is a rich source of antioxidant polyphenols and it may well be just as beneficial as green tea to promote weight loss and cardiovascular health by reducing high blood pressure and cholesterol.
