This tea is a real treat for lovers of aged oolongs. This premium Shanlinxi was already harvested in 2009, more than 10 years ago. Since then it has been regularly checked and roasted by the tea master Mr. Li so that this great tea can show its full aroma.
Aged Oolong tea leaves do not open like fresh oolongs as they age. The tea is checked every 2 or 3 years by an experienced tea master, who then decides whether the tea is roasted again in order to remove excess moisture and to maintain or expand the taste of the tea.
With the first infusion, the tea forms a very intense aroma, we recommend brewing this Shanlinxi at least three times so that it can fully develop its soft liquer-like aroma. It then rewards this with its slightly smoky taste and sweetish plum aromas. This Aged Oolong can certainly be brewed at least 5-6 times.
The tea is vacuum packed to protect the aroma.
