70s baozhong I found pawing through a box that had been in storage a few years.
I'm taking a break this weekend and spending some time alone drinking tea at the wonderful Cama Beach Cabins.
70s style to go with the 70s tea. Que the PFunk and fire up the Pinto!
This tea is suprisingly long lasting. You can still see a little of the original green and despite being roasted and 40 years old the leaves are still supple.
first few infusions were thick and rich, with mild herbal, strong mineral and some subtle dancing chinese medicine notes. Aftertaste is mild but mouth watering. I feel very settled and grounded.
Around 4th infusion there was a sudden proliferation of bubbles and some new hints of maybe original baozhong? Very strange.
5 infusion on is just a nice swing jazz dance with an smiling old lady. The burnt plum and coppery mineral have taken over with a faint pleasant stale note. The mouthfeel has thinned out a bit. We'll see how long this old lady can dance. I've got all afternoon.
