Tung Ting (Dong Ding) Winter season strong tea.
An aromatic, strong,rich, smooth green Oolong tea with antioxidants. A fantastic all round tea that you can drink any time of the day. I recommend this tea to all you who love a bolder green tea with lots of flavor. The tea scent is floral and the taste is full bodied and strong. The spring version of this tea is more mild and gentle. Keep in mind these are the general characteristics. You create your tea taste with the amount of tea you use and the length of time you steep them for.

Steeping instructions. Fully boil your water first, then allow it to cool for a few minutes. 90 C is a good temperature. If you're using only one teaspoon give it about 5 minutes.
Traditionally Taiwanese teas are steeped in small tea pots with 7 to 9 grams of tea (approx 3 teaspoons). The tea is strong and yet has a natural tea sweetness. Steeping time is about 30 to 45 seconds, according to taste. You can usually steep the pot 4 or 5 times.
My preference is to use a larger Korean Tea pot which holds 6 oz of water with 3 teaspoons of tea (about 9 grams of tea) I increase the steeping times with each subsequent steeping. After 3 infusions don't be afraid to push it...steep your tea for 20 to 30 minutes or even overnight. You can always add some hot water to warm the tea or dilute it if its too strong. With quality teas you can always make more! Remember you create your ideal tea taste by he amount of tea you use, the temperature of the water and the length of time you steep the tea. Don't be afraid to experiment.
