This tea is one that has similarties to the aged flavor ripe puerh teas try to mimic. But this tea is way better than any ripe puerh. It's pure aged sweetness steep after steep! Smooth, mellow, and sweet. I'm one of the few who's yet to experience tea 'drunkenness' with any tea and this one is no exception. And even though I feel no effects from drinking it, I love the sweet aged flavor. A very enjoyable aged tea!
I tried this aged oolong and despite not having tasting notes with me at the time, I quite enjoyed it. I believe I experienced tea Drunkness with this tea, but it is one I would like to continue drinking and make a proper IG post about. Even though it was an oolong, it reminded me of an aged, earthy pu-erhs; very enjoyable. Can't wait to reorder (if available) and drink again.
Incredible syrupy texture and long finish with an earhty pu erh twist. This is rare and quality aged tea!
This tea has a lot of delicious going for it. Yes, it’s earthy, but also a hint smoky. It has an umami one finds in aged teas that lingers just enough on the tongue, but not in a syrupy way. I brewed with a gaiwan and started with two 15 second steeps at 95C. Provides a lovely tea drunkenness.
This one has a clean taste -- of earth --and to me almost approaches a bourbon-smoothness...not sweet but enough mellowness to be
"engaging"---that is, you definitely want "more" of it...to taste a uniqueness that only an aged tea can show....fascinating!! It DOES "refer back" to other Nantou dark teas I have tasted--in the BEST ways--with a slight hint of molasses, maybe?
