Aged Oolong tea from 1990

Wang Tan Pei is a roasted, aged oolong from 1990. It produces a marvelous clear brown liquor with a pleasing aroma reminiscent of roasting chestnuts. The strong, distinctive flavor is slightly smoky with a sweet cleansing aftertaste.

Aged oolong is re-roasted every few years. This is a delicate process that requires the supervision of a tea master. The roasting removes excess moisture that would otherwise give the tea an earthy quality.

Wang Tan Pei aged oolong is a wonderfully complex tea that will stimulate your imagination. This is a rare tea very much in demand for its unique, refreshing taste.

Notes about Aged Oolong Tea:

The aged oolong does not open up like fresh oolongs. The tea is examined every 2 or 3 years, and if the tea master decides, it will be re-roasted to remove excess moisture and to retain the flavor of the tea.

After the tea has aged for 3 years it will have lost it's "fresh" flavor and begins the process of acquiring a mellowness that is characteristic of aged tea. From 5 to 10 years the color of the leaves turns from green to brown and the tea liquor takes on a reddish hue. After 15 years the tea is mature, although it will continue to improve with further aging.
