Plum Mountain - Aged Taiwanese Oolong 1983 - 1 oz
We discovered this rare aged treasure through a friend in Taipei on our May 2019 trip. With flavors of chinese herbs, goji berries and slightly smoky sweetgrass, the significant age of this tea yields a strong euphoric Qi that leaves you happy and light. Less sweet than other Oolongs with greater emphasis on the complex herbal flavors, this wonderful tea is subtle, refined and best brewed gongfu. From the Mei Shan (Plum) Mountain in the Ali Shan range, we believe this Mei Shan Oolong is made from the Jin Xuan tea cultivar. The oxidation is higher than most Mei Shan Oolongs, perhaps due to the age because they would have roasted more traditionally in 1983. Typical Mei Shan Oolongs carry a low oxidation oolong (15-20%) with very little roasting. We are honored to offer this small batch aged Oolong.
