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.

Sample Available: Feng Fu Sample Pack

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.

Good heavens! I mean to say... good heavens! I must shamefully admit I never drank a tea like this one. It's really different and I really like it. The taste in first infusion is indeed very chestnut-like. From the second infusion onward, there is also very strong dark chocolate tone (other than you might be used from red tea or finer shu puerh). And nougat taste is present too. The taste is not honey-like, but it is very sweet. The sweetness on the tongue lingers quite a long time. The tea is really powerful... even when I take a very little sip, my mouth is filled with strong and complex taste. This is not a tea for everyone I think. But it is a tea for me :-)

I tried the aged oolong yesterday and have to report that it's the best aged tea I've ever tried. I had one in Taiwan about 15 years ago and loved it, but thought it was a puer from China at the time. Since then I've tried perhaps 100 puers both here and in Beijing and never found what I was looking for.

The teas are excellent. The aged oolong is a definite re-purchase. Next order I will try your other offerings.....

I've been really enjoying your teas. The tea that most impressed me was the Aged oolong, odd, because I don't like puerrh.

The smokey taste of the aged version is an excellent match with Islay whisky!
