Dong Ding means "Frozen Summit".
For many Oolong lovers, Dong Ding is considered the premium Oolong.
Our Dong Ding has several unique features: An intense aroma, a well balanced roasted taste, and a yellow to orange infusion color. Each leaf is specially selected and carefully picked by skilled hands. Of course, the flavor and aroma of hand picked tea is much more mellow and smooth than tea trimmed by a machine.
The misty climate with warm days and cool nights of Chiang Rai province provide the adequate temperature and environment for the tea plants to grow peacefully and develop delicate buds.
Dong Ding Oolong will always be an excellent choice. It is also a very good Oolong to pair with a nice meal, as the roasted flavor enhances the whole gastronomic experience.

Brewing tea is a wonderful alchemy. It requires you to use your “six senses” to understand the tea harmony. By paying attention to time and water temperature, you will optimize the brewing up to the desired taste. Of course, it differs from one tea to another, as well as the vessel to be used. For a great tasting experience, a gaiwan or a yixing clay teapot are incontestable accessories. Practice is the key.
