Features: 

 

Hand-plucked and aged since 10 years ago, was a fine tea at the time it was produced, this aged tea develops brown-black tea leaves as it is dry. In the process of becoming an old tea, the tea was repeatedly roasted (in order to eliminate excess moisture and odor), and the tea leaves are conducting with a Maillard reaction to produce a large amount of gallic acid.

The liquor it produces promises the notes of smokey, burn wood, and a subtle sweet aftertaste (fruit acid). Firstly tasted mellow with the mild fragrance and then a sweet aftertaste quickly rising from the throat. This tea is perfect for people who prefer the aged taste (after chemical transformation) of oolong tea, drinking Aged Oolong Tea is definitely an exclusive choice and also an enjoyable lifestyle for all tea lovers.

Brewing tips: 

The water to steep this tea is about 90-95 degrees Celsius depending on an individual's preference. Use the ratio of 1g to 50cc (or 1g to 25cc), the first infusion time of about 6 (or 3) minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the number of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should be uncurled for full flavor.

 

For the ultimate enjoyment, a traditional Chinese Yixing teapot is recommended for loose oolong-aged tea. The teapot should be half-filled with leaves and initially steeped for 15 seconds (depending on an individual's preference) with the steeping time increased by an additional 5 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times.

Great Aged Tea!

This tea is fascinating. It really reminds me of rock tea. I also notice the leaves don't open quite as much as other oolong, but the flavour certainly does come out. The liquor s dark reddish brown, and it's astringent, most noticed at the back of the mouth and throat. Flavour wise, this tea tastes robustly woody and smokey, a bit of charcoal and minerals with an interesting honey-like note in the aftertaste. The aftertaste is substantial and lingering.

I got 10 infusions from these leaves, the flavours are quite consistent over time. The wood and smoke notes do mellow and by the final few infusions, I tasted more minerals. This was an intriguing taste experience!
