This Dong Ding is the last tea left for me to write about from my Tea Joint order. It is pleasant and very refreshing, but didn’t leave a strong impression ultimately.
The dry leaf aroma is quite interesting with notes of nectarine pits and flowers, followed by milk chocolate and aperol in a preheated pot. During the session, I got a kind of Mediterranean vibe from it, a bit like rosemary flowers.
The taste is sweet and vegetal, displaying flavours of linseed oil, lavender. In the mouth, I get a numbing sensation and the body is medium to light I’d say.
