Review of Dong Ding Oolong

The aroma of the tightly curled leaves is, as expected, delightfully pleasant, with notes of sweet honey and toasted sesame seeds, there are also notes of spicebush, chestnut, and a gentle orchid note. This is a lightly roasted oolong so it still has the floral notes along with the sweetness that roasting brings out, Tea Ave's website (and awesome packaging) gives the roasting level a 4 (out of 10 I am assuming) and I certainly agree with that.

The first tea really starts out floral and sweet, notes of honeysuckle and lilac, a tiny hint of spinach...and then hello roasted! The midtaste and finish is all about the roasted sesame and chestnuts with a sweet honey taste all throughout. The sweetness lingers for a while after sipping experience is finished.
