From Liquid Proust Teas

High in Laoshan and Light in Rye.

This is a project I have been thinking of for near two years and after playing around with barrels since 2016 I finally took the chance on a rather pricey project.

Rye barrel stored laoshan black tea will come in two batch, the first batch here will be light in storage. The second will come out later and will have a completely different profile.

The storage on this was checked up on a few times until it hit the spot I wanted. The moment that the leaf was breaking down from the vapors that eliminated the slight hardness that comes from black tea when pushed.

The rye barrel over the shorter period of time creates a background note of black raspberry dark chocolate bars or possibly red current truffles. It’s extremely complex and changes dramatically in aromatics and taste throughout the session.

This is a masterpiece for me.

Samples are at 25g.
High Laoshan Light Rye will not be replicated in the future, there are too many ideas in my mind to revisit it without someone dropping $$$ on me. This is a tea that’ll provide memories :)

Holy crap-a scented Andrew Liquid Proust Black! I was stoked for this. It’s been a few years since he’s barrel scented some stuff, the last being Rummy Pu which was so good. I was also stoked it was a Laoshan-I haven’t had these in a while. I’ve skipped them for a few seasons since the last batch I had from Verdant wasn’t as good as other years.

As for this lovelyness….it’s good and it drives me nuts that it’s going to be a limited release. I got two oz when I should have gotten more. Cherry Cordial Chocolate is what comes to mind, and it’s sooooooooo good. You can smell it from the bag, and then taste it from the tea.

I was going to do it western, but ended up gong fuing it because I used too many leaves by accident. 15 sec, and it’s boozy heaven. Later steeps lasted between a minute and 4 minutes. The alcohol is present, but it’s not overwhelming or overly flavored. Again, smooth chocolate, cherry, rhubarb, vanilla, scotch, and a little bit of sweet lingering taste with the perfect amount of drynesss and slight bitterness to off set the sweetness. Like many Laoshans I’ve had, it’s also buttery in texture. The rye fades in the rebrews, but the overall flavor profile remains as this tea gets more buttery.

Either way, I frickin love this. I’m holding off rating it before I jump to an immediate 100 due to my basicness when it comes to chocolaty black teas.
