Ku Ding

by Proinsias » Jun 18th, '10, 22:24

I've not had any ku ding for a while. The recent, unexpected, hot weather here has got me thinking about it again.

Any suggestions as to where to get it? uk shipping is a must.

The better ku ding's I've had have been very small leaf, not the long twisted stuff. I can see TeaSpring have it but it's only the long twisted variety and I wasn't keen on it when I tried it a few years ago.

Any ideas?

Not sure if this should go here or in the 'other teas' forum but I reckon it can be classed as herbal, I was planning on posting in the green tea forum but the pedants would have a field day.

What exactly does Ku Ding Cha taste like? A teashop less than 5mins from my house offers small samples, but I've never tried one.

It tastes bitter, but hopefully in a good way. Like a cross between young sheng and good green maybe.
