(I’m taking a wild guess that this is the tea that Red Blossom calls “Aged Tung Ting, ca. 1980.”)
Smells sweet and mildly earthy. Fairly tannic initially, but smooths out. In my opinion, it’s pretty balanced but not very interesting, compared to other aged teas, including the ca. 1970’s Tung Ting from Red Blossom. That one really does “feel old.” The 1980 also lacks the strong butterscotch notes that you can taste in roasted Tung Tings. There’s something subtly intriguing in the aftertaste, but that’s about it.
