Dong Ding (凍頂) means “Frozen Summit.” Teas grown on Dong Ding Mountain in Nantou County were first brought to Taiwan from the Wuyi mountain region in the mid-1800s. At the time, the gardens were some of the highest elevations in the country. It is one of the first Taiwanese teas. This particular tea is from the Qing Xin (青心) cultivar and comes from a garden at 450 meters height. It was harvested on April 2, 2020 and has been traditionally roasted to enhance its nutty characteristics.
