From Old Ways Tea

This dahongpao (大红袍) also known as Big Red Robe tea has been carefully aged in Wuyishan for 8 years, and then roasted again. The tea was produced in the spring 2008 season. The tea was roasted recently, and has a strong roast flavor. This tea exhibits much of the characteristics of aged tea. Like any aged product there is a trade off between time spent aging and the cost. This 8 year aged dahongpao provides a reasonable balance and is a good entry point into aged wuyi teas.

Roast: charcoal

Tasted during the Labor Day holiday in America.

I’m very happy with the teas from Old Ways Tea that I’ve picked up. This is a 2008 Aged Da Hong Pao that’s been re-roasted a few times.

There’s deep roasted flavors of tobacco, burnt wood, and smoke; lighter flavors of chocolate and coffee with milk; then it rounds out with High notes of vanilla, brown sugar, and caramel. Early infusions were interesting — tobacco followed by the cooling effect of mint (without any mint)

It’s very well balanced and robust. The roasted flavors don’t overwhelm the palate. It’s super smooth to drink with a surprisingly light viscosity and clean finish.

The cold brew of this tea is just as tasty.
