SiJiChun or Jinxuan Oolong. I will star giving away the fragrant SiJiChun unless you instruct me otherwise.
What's particular with a Dong Pian harvest? They mostly happen in lower altitudes, because higher altitude weather is too cold. It only happens after ideal dry and sunny weather conditions and when nights are cold. These conditions are very similar to high mountain weather, which is why it's very well suited to make very light oxidized Oolong. Yields are generally low, because there wasn't much time for the leaves to grow. And they are harvested by hand, which gives less astringency than machine harvests. Since they happen in lower elevations, we can find Dong Pian made with the fragrant Sijichun and the light milky Jinxuan Oolong.
The combination of all these elements makes Dong Pian a very fresh, fragrant low altitude Oolong that resembles high mountain with its very smooth and light taste. In the category of lightly oxidized and unroasted Oolongs, Dong Pian Oolongs have the lightest and nicest aromas. They are a very good and more affordable alternative to high mountain Oolong for an everyday brew.
