Grown Without Pesticides

Spring 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.

Dong Ding is also known in Japan as takayama (tall mountain) and is not easy to find. Oolong of this sort is not very popular in Japan, but is well known to experts and it is there that I learned this to be the best variety of semi-green (partially fermented) tea. The Dong-Ding from 'Tea from Taiwan' is the strongest and most well flavored one I have tried (out of about 5 different sources) and is also quite reproducible, in other words, the same brewing procedure yields the same tea time after time. Since this tea is tightly packed 'leaf balls', it is quite appropriate to vacuum pack it, which is done, and I think this helps retain its unique flavor.

The Dong Ding is indeed a wonderful tea with a most pleasant aftertaste. Nothing more to be desired as for this kind of oolong tea.
