Late post after LP stopped selling it and it’s something I hoarded from last year, and what Whiteantlers added further to this year. Thank you!

I was excited that Andrew started selling more oolong on Liquid Proust again after he procured some good ones. This one was not super expensive, so I thought it would be a run of the mill oolong that he sourced.

I was pretty ignorant when I first had it. The leaves are huge, even being close to the size of pennies rolled up. So a slightly better than usual Alishan? Trying it out, this tea was immensely creamy and aromatic with soft lilac and hyacinth florals and delicate fruits. The tea was prominently sweet, floral, and buttery, and milky.

As I’ve had this over time and opened up the bag a few more times, it’s become more fruity in the last year. When I opened up the bag today, it was floral galore and intensely buttery. Corn, and other fruits and florals mixed in with it. Some honeydew, a slight stonefruit note, coconut, and subtle pineapple too in the second steep western. Florals were more dominant but balanced out. Nuttiness hinted in steep three, though the tea is obviously creamy and floral Alishan with some fruit hints peaking out as the occasional flavor.

Then, I look up the name of this, and apparently, it’s a Stone Table Alishan. It reminds me of Beautiful Taiwan Tea’s Stone Table now that I think about it…

Anyway, this one works better for me western and grandpa. It does very well gong fu to break up the individual notes, but they are fully realised together with a thicker body western. I deeply enjoy this one, and though I’m not sure if Andrew’s going to sell this again, it’s a testament to the fact that he sells some unique and harder to find teas on Liquid Proust.

Yum! I definitely didn’t notice this tea on his website during the Black Friday sale, though I did get his Bai Hao cake.

This one was on there for a super short time last year. I think it was gone in three weeks. OOooh he was planning on that one for a long time. The Art of Tea cake really sold him on the idea of a pressed Bai Hao.

Leafhopper

Yes, I thought a pressed Bai Hao was an interesting idea, and the price was reasonable for 200 g. I saw a similar cake on Mountain Tea Co’s site a while back. I’m not sure whether I’ll break into it now or let it age.
