Old Master

Dong Ding Oolong 2022 • Sweet, roasted, dried date

Old Master is roasty, sweet, and tart in the first two steepings with a powdery, slightly astringent kougan. Notes of plum, dry dates, roasted almonds, and lily rise from a smooth and bright body. The masterful heavy roast is especially apparent during the first three steepings. Our favorite steepings were the third, sixth, and seventh because the tartness falls off, giving rise to a mineral sweetness and full body that seems more essential to this tea. The Qi is warming and centering.

We suggest brewing gongfu with small cups to emphasize the layers of the tea and water around 195 F. The first three steepings should be only a couple seconds.

Origin: Nantou, Taiwan
