From Tea Mountain

Very good, archival tea from the Shimen Farmers Association, which we visited in February 2020. It is a tea that was stored by the association all the time, here also baked on charcoal and then stored in a clean and dry warehouse. The tea is, of course, heavily roasted in the traditional style of the area, so after pouring it gives a bright dark orange to orange-brown infusion, on the surface of which a characteristic haze of essential oils is formed, which we see in well-ripened teas. The taste is clean, sweet, in the beginning with a light acidity (the result of catechin conversion) and a hint of salinity. The aroma gradually changes from heavily baked, pre-dried plums, dried longan, tobacco stalks, soy sauce, and a beautiful tone of fresh fruit, Chinese medicinal herbs and rare woods.

This is a somewhat average aged oolong. I like its depth in aroma with plenty of heavy sweet, woody and coffee notes. However, the rest of the experience is not as distinctive, and the tea loses steam quite early on in the session.

The mouthfeel is a little tannic and sticky, while the taste has a notable TGY presence without any particular roasty notes left. The profile is grainy and almost earthy at times.
