Dong Pian means frozen petal and it’s unique kind of Taiwanese oolong.

Tea is produced after regular winter harvest – usually during last days of December or first part of January.

To understand the Dong Pian phenomena  is a sudden rise in temperatures during the winter. The bushes wrongly “think” it’s a beginning of the spring and they starts to bud!

To make Dong Pian Oolong the buds and older leaves are used. Sometimes the buds are very very tiny.

Our Dong Pian is smooth, balanced and unroasted. You will find here floral notes of orchid, lily of the valley and pleasant creamy notes that make the liquor texture more intriguing.

Highly recommended!

Description

Origin: 300 m. above sea level, Baguashan, Nantou, Taiwan.
Harvest: 31th Decdmber 2021
Cultivar: Si Ji Chun (Four Seasons)

Temperature of water and amount of leaves: 95-100 C 5-6g/100ml.

Suggested brewing method: Yixing clay teapot or gaiwan of low capacity. First, you should pre-heat empty teapot/gaiwan and tea cups with boiling water. When the teapot is warmed, then you put the tea leaves in. After smelling hot and dry leaves in the pot, gently pour the boiling water to the pot.  First infusion should be very short- not more than 40 second. Second infusion should be little bit shorter than first one cause the leaves are more open then. We suggest to increase brewing time for 5-10 seconds in third and each next brewing.

    Love this tea. I initially thought the fragrance was too strong to be natural (smelled very strongly of magnolia flowers). But when brewed it was softer and surprisingly persisted for more than ten infusions. Initially I thought it was a bit too strong and astringent, but learned quickly that this oolong requires a much shorter infusion than typical oolong teas (I pour the first infusion out immediately, and only increase by 3 seconds for each consecutive one. PS I brew Gong Fu style).When brewed properly, this tea is very gentle, with no bitterness, and has notes of (obviously) magnolia, vanilla, and rooibos. Very very floral with lots of high notes. The body sensation from this tea is also excellent. Highly recommended.
