Mmm… So in honour of the looming (and extremely exciting) Aged Oolong group buy, I thought I’d treat myself to a session with this exceptional aged tea!

I know it’s not quite as aged as some of the ones that we’ll be getting, but 10 years still gives this tea a real depth and complexity of flavour – in particular, the woodiness, the spiced-notes, and the lovely, deep, dark flavour! Perfect on such a chilly autumn day :-)

(Incidentally, it didn’t occur to me at the time, but I spotted someone else has tagged “coffee” as a flavour note for this tea; it really does kinda remind me of a “fancy latte” (you know, the really delicious, non-bitter ones that you can get from “artisan” coffee houses??). Delicious :D )

(Also also, I brewed this up in my lovely little Acorn teapot from Verdant – it’s so pretty, and some of the crackles are finally starting to develop a bit of darker colour. Lovely! :D )

Junior doctor and casual tea-drinker.

It’s been a busy few years for me – I’ve graduated from med school and I’m now working full time as a junior doctor in a small UK hospital. I’ve returned Steepster to continue to learn, take recommendations and share my experiences :-)

I remain particularly keen to try lots of new teas, especially Pu Erhs and Oolongs!

I’m also happy to swap, particularly within the UK! If you see anything in my cupboard that you wanna try, please don’t be afraid to ask! Most of them I have at least 25 g of, so a 5 g sample or so will be no trouble :-)
