2 Tasting Notes
Underwhelming. I had high hopes for this high mountain tea. The tea had an amazing smell out of the package but unfortunately that is where the goodness ends. It was a flat taste and no outstanding flavors. Tried using hotter water to coax out more flavor but to no avail. It just isn’t there. This review is of their 2018 edition.
So in my opinion the Dong Ding is purchase worthy. I just finished a session with it and I think I will buy a couple of ounces of it.
The front and center of this tea is a perfume type of flavor. The type of perfume that you taste and smell simultaneously that bears some cinnamon and nutmeg in it. It is sweet which balances out the perfume and supports the spice. There is a slight smokiness and a little nuttiness. It has some complexity but in an everything works together kind of a way. Quite enjoyable
