Thank you Liquid Proust for doing all the work for the aged oolong sampler. This one is fairly smooth with no roast flavor. I’d say it has a whiskey note to tell you the truth but without the punch of real whiskey. That is just my best explanation for the notes in this complex tea. Someone else may have a better explanation as to the main notes of this tea. I steeped it twelve times and there was little bitterness to it. I’m not getting much in the way of cha qi here but maybe it will hit me later.
I steeped this twelve times in a 60ml gaiwan with 4g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 454 sec, 1min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.
