From Global Tea Hut

Mercy is a glorious aged Muzha Tieguanyin that is most likely from the 1980s. It could also be 1990s, as well. With teas like this, there is no way to verify the age—only drink it relative to other teas and pass on what the vendor who sold it to us said. Whenever it is from, this well-aged Tieguanyin is beautiful, with burgeoning flavors and aromas that go on and on. This tea is both complex and long-lasting, with hints of berries, herbs and nuts and occasionally flowers. The Qi is powerful, with an uplifting and bold vibrancy. Mercy is a wonderful tea and we got it for a relatively affordable price since the collector who shared it with us has not followed the market trend of marking up aged oolong.

I am feeling a bit underwhelmed by this possibly-30-to-40 year old tea. I got heavy, HEAVY brandy notes from the leaves and first steep, which really intrigued and excited me. Flavors on the first two steeps were stewed fruit, raisins, spices, and alcohol. It’s probably the most liquor-tasting tea I’ve ever had. That said, I felt it muddied and washed out to a meh-tieguanyin without stopping to say goodbye. I thought of Octavia Tea’s Brandy Oolong immediately, but this one doesn’t last quite as long or come across quite as distinctly.

That all said, I am a newb and still have trust issues with my palate — so I’ll revisit, focus more, and see what else I can find. It’s good, absolutely… but maaaaaybe not a reorder as of this session.
