Winter 2017. A really well roasted winter oolong in the classic "dong ding" style from our favorite roaster in Taiwan who has won numerous awards for his incredible roasting capabilities.

One of our Artisan Reserve oolong teas, a line of small batch handmade teas from a craft handed down over generations. Hand selected for having all the hallmark qualities of the highest grades with noteable personality accents.

This is a superb tea from Oct, 2017, stored in a vacuum seal. We have procured this Tung Ting Oolong rare varietal from a small artisan farm in Nantou, Taiwan. Top seller in the Zhi oolong line!

Perfectly roasted and lightly sweet, this oolong reveals itself over several steepings. Hand crafted and grown organically in Taiwan.

Light fragrance Qing-xin cultiver.

2.0 oz Pouch - $22.95

    I stopped into Zhi Tea not knowing very much about tea, I decided to try a bunch of different sample size tea's before committing to a tin. I am drawn to the subtle oolong aroma of the frozen summit. The sample size price was a total steal!

    I can't believe there's only one other review of this amazing tea! Wow is all I can say for this tea. It has a wonderful aroma with a splendid aftertaste. One of the best teas I've ever had. Try it!

    I just finished a package of award winning Dong Ding tea and was looking for another similar tea so I picked up Zhi's Dong Ding to give it a try. I was rewarded with a wonderfully mellow oolong with aromas of field flowers and sweet corn and soft vegetal flavors with a hint of plum or tropical fruit. That's the problem with summing up the essence of tea or wine in comparative terms! No matter what I taste or smell I just can't relate the experience well so you'll just have to try this tea for yourself. If you are looking for a tea that is healthful and suitable for daily brewing then look no further. As with most oolong teas, you will get more out of the experience with a gongfu tea set.

Water: 195°F | Leaves: 1.5 -2 teaspoons per 6 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3-4 minutes

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t over-boil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time.
Leaves can be re-steeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Polyphenol in oolong tea is effective in controlling weight. It activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglycerides. Studies have confirmed that a 2-3 cup per day intake of oolong tea contributes to enhancing the function of fat metabolism and controlling obesity.
The Dong Ding Oolong hails from the Dong Ding Mountain in Nantou, Taiwan. The name means “cold summit” in Chinese. Dong Ding is one of the most famous oolong tea producing regions in Taiwan. The origins of this tea dates back to the 1860’s. It is believed that the Dong Ding Oolong tea plants are actually a specimen of the Wuyi strain that have been carefully selected and re-planted in Taiwan.
