Gu Xiang, another version of roasted Dong Ding, hand-plucked leaves of the Qing Xing cultivar, is grown in the Nantou region of Taiwan at an elevation of 800 meters. The leaves absorb moisture from the surrounding fog and clouds every morning and afternoon which is ideal for Oolong plants. Due to the unique geographic location and stringent selection of leaves, this is the finest Dong Ding Oolong from the Nantou tea estate.
The traditional roasting technique with Dong Ding processing creates an unforgettable extremely roasted grain flavor from the very first sniff to the dry leaves. Firstly tasted mellow with a mild fragrance and then a sweet aftertaste quickly rising from the throat making it famous for decades all over the world. This tea is perfect for people who prefer the roasted taste with nutty notes of oolong tea, drinking Gu Xiang Dong Ding Oolong Tea is definitely an exclusive choice and also an enjoyable lifestyle for all tea lovers.
The water to steep this tea is about 90-95 degrees Celsius depending on an individual's preference. Use the ratio of 1g to 50cc (or 1g to 25cc), the first infusion time of about 6 (or 3) minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the number of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should be uncurled for full flavor.
For ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot is recommended for loose oolong tea. The teapot should be half-filled with leaves and initially steeped for 15 seconds (depending on an individual's preference) with the steeping time increased by an additional 5 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times.
