Thank you Liquid Proust for making this aged oolong sampler happen. This is an interesting tea. It has I would say a medium to medium strong roast. It was roasty until at least the fifth steep. I gave this tea eight steeps and it is a little too roasty for me. Although it did get noticeably better in the seventh and eighth steep. I’m not sure how to describe the notes that developed after the roast flavor went away but it did get noticeably smoother. I used the entire sample of 6.7g in a gaiwan around 120ml or so.

I steeped this tea eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 6.7g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, anad 30 sec. I stopped at eight steeps because I have hada a large amount of tea today and I am at my caffeine limit anyway.

This is the first tea that I drank from the Aged Oolong sampler I put together and it was such a joy to finally drink something I’ve been working on for awhile.

I meant to pick out a cheaper tea to have the other look weak when I get to them, but this is not doing that. The leaf may be small and a bit beaten up, yet when you look at it you can tell that it hasn’t been abused in regards to roasting because you can see its green color to it.
I ended up only using 3grams with a few ounces of water at a time at 187c (or so) for 30 seconds to a minute. Each steep was absolutely amazing. Don’t tell anyone…. I drank 4 steeps back to back within three minutes. The taste changes depending on the steep time. If you steep it for 30 seconds its possible to get the buttery texture because the light roast doesn’t settle in as much. Steeping at a minute gives it a defined taste like a roasted bancha from Japan which is strange to compare to. This was a fun tea to play with because I was able to get a buttered texture and a slightly roasted texture. The taste lingers for a long time which is great. There are nutty remarks and sweet undertones to the tea as well. All together, this is just fabulous.
What’s better? This is the same tea that What Cha has which means that I can compare two different styles of storage :)
