Quick description: Taiwanese oolong

Dongding (凍頂), also spelled Tung-ting, is an oolong tea from Taiwan. The original plants were brought from China's Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province.[1] Dongding, which could be translated "Climb to mountain with cold feet", is the name of the mountain on which the tea is grown.

Dongding is in the Lugu region of Nantou County in central Taiwan. This area has long been used for tea cultivation. Many so-called Dongding teas are now produced elsewhere in Nantou and follow the traditional Dongding production method. Dongding is typically medium oxidized(about 30%).

Dongding is still primarily hand-picked and is either charcoal or machine oxidized.
