My first Dong Ding oolong and it is very smooth. It takes a few steeps to unroll but each one is different and you can taste the flavors coming out with.
The brew is light yellow with only a hint of green. It has a hint of butter and a creamy, heavy mouthfeel. Just the way I like it.
The flavor of this oolong is very earthy, with a deep almost roasted vegetable flavor. Definitely a little buttery, and if you swirl the tea around in your mouth a little bit, a light fruitiness starts to show through the buttery vegetables. It's a very interesting, flavorful tea that I'm glad to have experienced.
After trying Dong Ding Oolong from ToDoTea, I suddenly discovered a whole new dimension to drinking Taiwan tea. The full body flavor of the tea brew is so much better than the tea bags. Never going back to the tea bags ever again.
I fixed myself a pot of this tea mid-day and enjoyed the full bodied finishing immensely.
