Features: 

 

Hand plucked and aged since 2008, being 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 is repeatedly roasted and stored, and the tea leaves are conducting with Maillard reaction to produce a large amount of gallic acid.

The liquor it produces promises the notes of smokey, burn wood, and 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 Oolong Aged Tea is definitely an exclusive choice and also an enjoyable lifestyle for all tea lovers.

Brewing tips: 

The water used to steep this tea should be about 90-95 degree Celsius. Use about 3 grams of tea leaves for about every 150 c.c. of water. A steeping time of about 6 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 uncurl 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 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each successive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times.
