Dong Ding Oolong 1985

A blast from the past! This is a very well stored Dong Ding Oolong from 1985 when Careless Whisper & Like A Virgin were top of the charts! What a treat to drink such a venerable aged tea! The dried leaves are dark & oxidised and have an aroma of roasted grain & dried seaweed. After first infusion, the gaiwan lid wafts with sweet notes of honey, toffee apples, salted fluffy white butter popcorn, mixed with heavier aromas of sandalwood, camphor, leather, musty herbal medicines. The tea liquor is a dark amber with the aroma of dried orange peel. The tea floats on the tongue - light bodied but viscous, with a smooth clean mouthfeel. There is very little sourness often found in teas of this age. The sweet flavor of roasted rice fills the mouth, throat & sinuses. An after taste of charcoal roast turns to sweet caramel. A very pleasant journey, full of warmth & character. This is a fantastic tea for relaxation & contemplation.
