The origin of Dong Ding oolong tea dates back to 1841 with 12 Hong Xin ‘Red Heart’ tea transplanted from the Wu Yi Mountains in China. Planted on the foggy foothills of Dong Ding Mountain in Lu Gu Township, ideal for growing tea due to cool, cloud & mist environment. The unique processing technique of Dong Ding Oolong is that after the tea stems are wilted, the tea is rolled with cloth into a ball and the leaves are pressed into half ball shapes. This is called the “cloth rolling process.”
