Much better than tea bags

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.

Glad that you like this. The loose leaf tea certainly brings more lasting flavor than tea bags.

What Is Taiwan Dong Ding Oolong Tea?

For a long time, the name Dong Ding Oolong is almost synonymous with Taiwan Oolong tea.

It is a name traditionally used for medium oxidised, medium roasted tea leaves grown around Lugu's Dong Ding Mountain, around 700 m in altitude.

As one of the four oldest tea regions in Taiwan, Dong Ding Oolong tea originally came from tea farms in Jhangya, Yonglong and Fonghuang villages in Lugu.

It has since expanded to most of the villages in Lugu Township, Nantou.

The unique soil around Dong Ding Mountain coupled with more mature tea leaves, longer periods of withering and stirring processes contribute to the distinct Dong Ding Oolong tea flavour.
