This 1984 came on strong. first infusion tasted way more aged than the first, no where near as sweet, and a definite hit of tartness. Aroma though is far more complex and incredibly interesting.
While the 1984 has a lot more complexity, I think currently I feel far better about the ~10 year old, sometimes simple is better.
Well if you have any of the 1984 left I'd be too happy
to help you with the "problem" lol
I had some of the 1984 in a thermos and when I drank the last bit (where the fine bits of leaves give it that extra little kick, so intense!) I could not help but shout "My God this is good tea!" Then, everyone in the supermarket line started at me.
Aw... I'm missing that tea so badly-- it is currently the oolong that I compare all others to and they all come up wanting... it's like being in love really.
Do others here fall in love with teas?
I can be a bit fickle though... I'm like a teenager next week who knows which tea I'll be in love with.
