The description of this tea is excellent. The storage over the years has been great and this is truly aged tea that could very well be passed off as a fancier Taiwanese lao cha. Reminds me of an aged Dongding I have aging in a pewter caddy, but sufficiently different. There is good complexity in the flavor profile of this tea and I even got a strong (but fleeting) aftertaste of agarwood in the second infusion. Definite cinnamon and sweet apple, which was surprising to me considering the low oxidation and roast level of this tea. This is really an excellent oolong and I'm surprised at the quality.
