Taster’s Review:

Dong Ding Oolong from Tea Ave.  What can I say?  It’s everything you expect in a might-fine Dong Ding Oolong!  It has a strong yet clean flavor and aroma.  The nose and tongue also features a lightly roasted characteristics, too!  The aftertaste has subtle notes of ripe stone fruit.  This will please new Oolong sippers all the way up to Oolong Gurus!

It’s also an extremely versatile Oolong.  What I mean by this is that you can steep it in a tea bag, warm your water in a tea pot and infuse the loose leaf that way, cold brew it overnight, or go with the traditional Gaiwan.

This Oolong is pretty heavy-duty, too, as it offers multiple infusions with optimal flavor.  This is a real winner among Dong Ding Oolongs.  YUP! Dong Ding Oolong From Tea Ave is a goodie!
