BEHIND THE NAME: Dong Ding, "Frozen Summit", is named after the mountain where it is cultivated. The locals have a saying that goes, "you would have frozen toes if you climb to the top of Dong Ding Mountain in winter".

ABOUT THE GROWER
Partner tea growers Xie and Lin are unorthodox. They grow tea organically in farms that had been previously abandoned in the highlands of central Taiwan; the availability of older trees growing on rich soil means that the tea will not have the consistency of mass production tea; every batch is special, with rich flavour and energy.
