Grown Without Pesticides

Winter 2016

Dong Ding Ming Xiang oolong tea is produced in the Dong Ding mountain area of Nantou county in Taiwan. Dong Ding is one of the most famous oolong tea producing regions in Taiwan. Its history stretches back to the 1860's when a Dong Ding native brought several tea plants from China back to Taiwan. Dong Ding mountain proved to have ideal climate and soil conditions for oolong tea cultivation.

The Dong Ding area was near the epicentre of the 1999 earthquake that devastated Taiwan. In the aftermath of the disaster many of the tea plantations were left unattended. When work resumed on them and the neglected wu long was picked and processed it was found to have a deliciously sweet honey flavour.

Investigation showed that the oolong tea gets its honey flavour from secretions left on it by cicadas. In order to encourage this special flavour, Dong Ding Ming Xiang wu long tea must be grown without the use of pesticides.

Taiwan Ming Xiang wu long has a distinctive sweet taste and aroma. It brews a dark colour wu long tea that has a lingering sweetness that settles on the back of the tongue. Dong Ding Ming Xiang is truly one of the jewels of Taiwan wu long tea and is highly valued by oolong tea connoisseurs.

Great Tea. When brewed sweet green smell.sweet taste initially on the tongue followed by mild fruit like after taste finishing with the slightly smokies flavour of what you expect an Oolong to be. Definitely worth the price glad I'd brought 300g.Nicely packed in 45 g amounts so it can last. Good postal service and cus toner follow up. Thanks

Upon opening I immediately smelt the honey flavor. After brewing, I quite enjoyed the subtle sweetness mixing with the oolong taste. Really a very special oolong tea.

Excellent Tea. I found this tea to be vibrant, sweet & full-bodied. It's a little pricey so it's probably one I would save for special occasions - but very good none the less

Another of my favorite, this tea is special and you know it the moment when you open the tea package. It is heavier and more mature than the rest of the teas out there. When brewed, even its colors is more brown, golden and darker than the rest. Like biting into a ripe and juicy fruit in mid-summer, this is what it reminds me of when drinking Dong Dong Ming Xiang. Embarking on an adventure with this tea is like swimming in a golden field of honey and heavenly flowers. Treat yourself well and give this golden drink a try.

I had a sample of this tea in one of my tea boxes and it proved to be a great start of a weekend. This Dong Ding was incredible throughout the Gongfu session (seven steeps total), starting with moderate floral notes and creamy mouthfeel followed by mild buttery notes and finishing with honey impression in throat. Along this profile, every sip is followed by clear notes of stone fruits and mild sweetness. I didn't try as much Dong Ding oolongs but this one was the best so far!

Loving this Dong Ding. Subtle coating of fruity layers envelopes your mouth along with hints of floral scents waking up the nostrils....feels good to be alive!
