Dong Ding Mr Chang

Product code: CSTW-8
Add to my notebook

Over the years, wulongs from Dong Ding Mountain have made quite a name for themselves. Grown in high-altitude, shorter daylight and greater temperature variations concentrate the aromatic oils in the slow budding leaves. They are well known amongst tea enthusiasts for their creamy texture and buttery taste.

In their traditional style, wulongs from Nantou region are typically roasted. But the last decade has seen farmers leaning more and more towards “jade wulongs” production: bright blue-green unroasted pearls gloriously showcasing the creamy potential of Taiwanese tea. This exquisite Dong Ding tea reveals bright floral fragrances rounded up by exotic fruits accents and delightful milky side notes.

Our tea advisors also recommend

Jin Shuan

The Jin Shuan cultivar is prized in Taiwan for its floral character and texture reminiscent of cream and butter. The full-bodied liquor is both delicate and rich. The taste of flowers (lily, dandelion) and pine nuts harmonizes to make this one of our mildest and most refreshing wulongs.

Wazuqu Cast Iron Teapot | Yoho

With more than four centuries of experience at their craft, the Kikuchi Hojudo foundry is a true leader in Wazuqu steel (a Japanese steel of very high quality).

Shan Lin Xi

Initial impression from this taiwanese highland wulong is an aroma of ground-cherry and wheat-grass which evolves into fresh vanilla and flowers. Rich creamy texture with sweet final notes of coconut.

Dong Ding Mr Nen Yu (Roasted)

The expertise of M.Nen Yu is doubly honored here with this tasty cooking of Dong Ding. The dark khaki leaves exhibit from their infusion intoxicating fragrances of berries (raspberry jam), honey and toast. Its liquor, rich and creamy, reveals a nice balance between its wooded and vegetal aspects. This generous tea also features an exotic finish of pineapple and flowers.
