A thick, deep taste with rich aroma of cherry, chocolate, sweet red apples. Velvety aftertaste of aged tea with cinnamon and bark notes.

Lao Qing Xin (Chin Shin) Oolong is very unusual tea. In addition to amazing taste and flavor, it has a very powerful energy. By the third-fourth brew different metamorphosis of consciousness begin to happen. The tea has a calming effect, it always brings relaxation to the mind and body and fills with tranquility and light euphoria.

Tea is a very delicate thing. It can show itself from different angles, depending on people around, the level of your care and attention, experience and native sensitivity.

Moreover, this aged Qing Xin is really unique. If you look at the photo you can see a memorial plate confirming the age. There are numbers: 2538, which mean the year of the harvest of this oolong. Buddhist 2538 is only 1995 for the Christians. It was the first harvest on the plantation and the owners decided to memorize this event in such way. To the great regret, this plantation of Qing Xin Oolong have been totally cut down long time ago, so we can't try any fresh tea from there. But this old tea also remained just in a few amount. Hurry up to order!

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 laocha. 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.
