This tea can truly be called Lao Cha Wang - "old tea king". Despite the considerable age and annual roasting, the master managed to keep a dense and bright taste in this Aged Cui Yu (means “Green Jade”) Oolong. Aroma of tea is rich and complex. In the taste, there are coffee, candy, and baked notes, a complex fruit mix, tree bark, cinnamon and fried sunflower seeds.

The fragrance perfectly passes into the taste. The aftertaste is oily and grassy with fruit seed notes so specific for Thai oolongs. The high fire of this Jade Oolong noticeably decreases after two infusions and does not interfere with the smoothness and softness of the throat. Good level of brewing ability - after three brewings tea becomes only more fragrant.

Twisting and roasting was done manually, so the leaves are not tightly rolled and completely unfold after several steepings. A worthy specimen for Oolong collection.

USDA certified Organic oolong tea.

Please, note! This tea is recommended for high-fire tea admirers. It requires the softest water.

while not as aged as it's '95 brother (and doesn't re-steep as much),
this oolong still shows distinct signs of aged, and is a fun drink.

at first is was a little peculiar, with a couple of interesting sour notes,
but at the same time it reminded me of medium roasted Wuyi Yancha,
and it grew on me.

Interesting and worth a try!

I was very happy with this tea. It's exactly what I expect from an aged oolong from China or Taiwan. Complex, sweet and lingering, quite deep. I tasted caramel, raisins a little cinnamon. I didn't know what to expect and very pleasantly surprised.

A striking taste for aged oolong tea is sweet, joyful. Aroma of chocolate, sugar candy. Cha Qi brought the desire to consider a jade dragon under the compositions of Xie Dong Xiao.

The smell of dry leaves: coffee, cinnamon, cocoa beans.
Rinsed: coffee grounds, strong spicy flavor.
The color of the liqueur: oily-topaz, with a glow of gold amber. The transparency is very high.
Smell of liquor: KOPI LUWAK coffee with cream. A few confectionery tones.
The taste is quite complex, soft-coffee-creamy. Tones of coffee, cream alternate with truffle-cinnamon, creating a comfortable-spicy sensation, peace and lightness in the oral cavity. There is no dryness and acid, there is a slight coolness and salivation.
The body of tea: oily, velvety, light-cloudy, light and pure.
A plume of a bowl: coffee-sweet, cinnamon-chocolate, intensive enough.
Summary. Good tea. Not exquisite, but clean, honest and tasty. I like such wise calm teas.
