From Camellia Sinensis

From the famous Mount Ali in Taiwan, the leaves of this tea were harvested from tea plants cultivated at high altitudes to then be transformed, cooked and aged, giving them a dark khaki hue. Upon rinsing, rich aromatic scents evoke roasted grains, sugar and dried fruit (prunes). Its strong and sweet liquor is comforting and its long finish enhanced with woody notes (bark) and spices.

Gongfu Sipdown (601)!

Last tasting note in my queue from the past week!! Definitely feels like a relief to be through the list and only took… Five hours this week?! Christ…

I finished this tea off yesterday afternoon near the end of the work with, with one of my coworkers who was also working on a project in the back of the lab at the same time as I was there enjoying my tea and wrapping up my projects for the week. Coincidentally, Ali Shan is this coworkers absolute favourite kind of oolong, but she had never tried an aged or roasted version of it; so this was cool to get to share with her.

We completely brewed out the tea leaves, which resulted in around ten infusions shared between the two of us. The first two and last two were quite soft though as the leaf was opening up and the dying out. So, it was a short/limited sweet spot.

Unfortunately this tea is sold out, so as much as we both enjoyed it we wont be able to get out and stock up on any more of it. C’est la vie. Still, very good session and awesome experience sharing with her. I am absolutely loving having a Gongfu set up at work and getting to partake in the experience of sitting down and sharing tea with someone else in person.

I’ve been saying it a lot lately to various posters, but lucky you for having somebody to share a gongfu session with! <3

So happy and excited to have a great aged oolong back in my cupboard. This is fantastic.
I’m not writing about it tonight – just basking in it’s greatness.


Might have to pick this one up. I’ve been looking for good aged oolongs lately – the one I got from Verdant recently didn’t taste quite the way I wanted (but the couple previous ones were delicious). I think it’s because they were roasted.
