The leaf I received was very brittle and somewhat broken up, but a little cosmetic damage doesn’t mean too much to a tea. I warmed my gaiwan up as I took a sniff of the small black slivers. They gave off a nice aroma of dry maple with some char. These are pretty roasty, and I hope it was a successful firing. I scooped my leaf inside the gaiwan and gave them a swirl. The roast scent mixed in with some slight leather and dark fruit, The leaf portrays a common aged oolong profile with the dry raisiny tones. I washed the leaf once and prepared for brewing. The taste was smooth and lightly sweet. A calm brew with wooded tones and raisin with a base of mineral and spice. The drink is nice, but it is relatively plain. However, the odd sweet and spice mix does excite the palate somewhat. A harsh astringent tone hastily presents itself soon after the first couple steeps. I did not notice any qi from this drink.

Brewed this up this morning after a bowl of matcha expecting a nice roasted tea to open the day. I was rather surprised to find that this was much alike the 1989 oolong from Tea Urchin. Hints of cocoa in the background with a sweetness that mixes in the overall taste to be like a caramel taste. With a minor roast profile, this is an ideal tea for drinking now and in the future. Absolutely wonderful. For roughly $10 an ounce at bulk buy, this is a wonderful price. Easily getting 10+ steeps out this and I can easily say that this tea evolves. It slowly opens up into a earthy, woodsy, type of oolong after the sweetness fades away. Wonderful buy. Now I need to drink the other aged oolong from CS and find out which ones I will be buying a lot of.


i take it this is a puerh?


feng huang = phoenix mountain. shui xian = an oolong
