Happy June! We’re celebrating outdoorsy weather and sunshine with our latest Tea of the Month, Dong Ding Oolong. (And don’t forget Father’s Day: Shop our sale until June 19 and get 15% off all straight oolongs. A little birdie told us that your dad loves oolong).
Why did we choose Dong Ding Oolong as our June Tea of the Month?
For one, it’s delicious cold-brewed, which makes it perfect for warmer weather. Its sweet, fruity flavor also pairs well with summer-appropriate treats like fresh-fruit popsicles (more on that next week).
Dong Ding is a favorite among newbies and tea lovers alike, and for good reason: Grown on the Dong Ding Mountain in Nantou County in Central Taiwan, where the variety originated, it’s one of the best oolongs in the world. It has a strong, clean flavor, a ripe-fruit aroma, and it’s partially oxidized and lightly roasted, making it an approachable, highly drinkable tea. It possesses a full body, and longer infusions will yield a stronger-tasting tea.
