And I got my hands on some 1980 Tung Ting Aged Charcoal Roasted oolong from Red Blossom Tea Company. <http://www.redblossomtea.com/details.php?sec=anxi&item=51>
It's delicious and I love drinking it on a rainy day. Anyone have experience with aged oolongs?
Aged teas have a very different flavor profile. They have been re-roasted many times and don't taste like they did when they were young. Sort of like us. Aged Shui Xian is a favorite but I prefer drinking fresher teas on a daily basis, occassionally dipping into my aged stash.
