If you're looking for a delectable medium-roasted oolong, this is the tea for you. A high-elevation handpicked Taiwanese oolong, this Dong Ding from Lugu, Nantou County takes your taste buds on a flavor journey, with notes that linger on the palate long after taking a sip. The aroma of the lightly oxidized brewed leaf is nicely toasty, and once you taste the brew, you'll experience sweetness akin to honey, melon and peaches with a finish of cinnamon and even a slight note of asparagus. Try it and see what other flavors you pick up!

Ingredients:

Medium Roasted Taiwanese Oolong Tea.

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS

By the 8oz cup
  1. Scoop a heaping teaspoon of Dong Ding leaves into your infuser.
  2. Heat water to 195 (just before boiling).
  3. Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
  4. Steep tea for 3-5 minutes (depending on taste preference).
GONG-FU:

Fill the pot 1/5 full of dry leaf, add 195 water and allow to stand for 60 seconds before decanting and drinking. The second brew should steep for 20 seconds, the third for 45 seconds, the fourth for 1 minute 20 seconds, and the fifth for 2 minutes 20 seconds, etc. Please note that, as flavor particulates sink, decanting into a pouring pitcher and from there to cups seems to work best. Alternatively, cups can be partially filled, then topped off in reverse order, so flavor in each cup will be approximately the same.

By The Pot:

Simply add to your infuser one heaping teaspoonful of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 195 water and let it steep for 4 minutes. Remove the infuser and serve! Can be steeped multiple times.
