Dong Ding Oolong, also called Tung Ting, Cold Summit or Red Water Oolong, is one of the classic teas of Taiwan. The tea is very rich and full of aroma, both of fruit and flower, and the roasting rounds out and deepens the tea.
Mrs. Su is a master at making her hometown tea - Dong Ding. She also happens to be a charcoal roast master, which is an art that is fading away with the modern age of electric roasters. And additionally, she is a good and generous woman who I had the honor to meet through the late Winnie Yu. Thus, this is a sentimental treasure for us.
