SIPDOWN 24

A tea I have received from derk, apparently quite a long time ago. Thank you! And what a sad sipdown. Aged oolong isn’t something I drink daily.

I noticed year ago some raspberries… maybe they were there. Today it roasty, mellow, sweet, molasses, a bit of chocolates, and overall very pleasant.

I did first few steeps quite carefully, but then I lost track, as I was writing notes to my Wednesday exam, so I was just keeping it in gaiwan for random time; and well it wasn’t a bad preparation method, I felt free about it… and got a lots of interesting and all tasty steeps. There weren’t some steep I would say… this is a weird, undrinkable, awful or whatever.

I guess it was better prepared for first time… but as I wasn’t paying attention to this session, I am happy it went that well.

derk wrote as well: “I like it even though nothing about it stands out in particular. It’s mellow and calming enough to be a daily evening drinker without much attention having to be paid.” I have to agree completely. It’s 9 pm here; and indeed it works well for that purpose. Evening drinker with mellow and calming qualities.

Haha! I misrepresented the number of teas in my cupboard the other day. I probably have another 20-30 from a Liquid Proust group buy in late 2018. Is this really the first one I’m sampling from the Aged Oolong category? I was going to post this under Random Steepings, but I figured Liquid Proust needs some more cred on this site, especially considering his devotion to the leaf and the enthusiasm to spread teas aimed for the Eastern market far and wide.

Dry, warm and rinsed leaf aromas are fairly strong with dark chocolate with raspberry filling, modest roast, caramel, brown toast, dark brown sugar, hints of cherry and red currant. Once brewed, the aroma is mellow with berries, spice and cocoa. The taste is mostly woody and somewhat drying but there’s more going on than I can articulate. Not much change throughout the infusions, of which I was able to pull eight or nine. Late in the session I let a cup cool and a pleasant mineral sweetness came forward with salivation. The spice tone was also more noticeable, while a light unripe peach aftertaste did its thing. Roast notes were not at the forefront with this tea, more of a muted background deal.

I like it even though nothing about it stands out in particular. It’s mellow and calming enough to be a daily evening drinker without much attention having to be paid.
