Frozen Summit or Dong Ding Oolong is one of Taiwan’s most famous teas and considered to be one of the finest in the world. Traditionally Dong Ding comes from Lugu in Nantou county but crop quality has dropped over the years. We use the finest high altitude Chin Xin Oolong leaves from the revered Alishan mountain close by to Lugu. These leaves are far higher quality than the majority of Lugu crops.
In recent years Dong Ding Oolongs have been produced primarily with a light roasting to suit the modern tastes of ‘Qing Xiang’ or bright aroma tea. These are fine but we prefer the traditional roasting of a Dong Ding – darker and nuttier. So we commission our Dong Ding to be given a deep fire roast which we feel brings out so much more depth in the tea.
The tea fills your nose, mouth and throat with dancing flavours from dark roasted to buttery to spicy and sweet. It is of exceptional quality and the finish is simply astounding. There are few teas out there that have such a long and delicious finish as our Dong Ding. It charms your mouth for more than half an hour after drinking.
