Hualien 1980

Product code: CSTVI-81
Add to my notebook

Here is one of those little aged jewels from the Hualien region on the east coast of Taiwan. Tinted khaki, the leaves of this thirty year old wulong, once rinsed, offer generous aromas of damp wood and spicy cigars. Its soft liquor flows gently on the palate spreading its sweet (beet) and metallic (prunes) flavours. The finish is deep and subtly mineral.

Bai Hao 2008

Aged for almost ten years, this wulong from Mr. Xu is sure to charm all admirers with the scent of brown sugar that emanates from its blend of whole leaves and fine silver buds. In infusion flavours of bark and roasted coffee dominate the aromatic spectrum. Its liquor, clear and mineral, retains a certain vitality despite its years of dormancy. Buckwheat (honey) and butter caramel notes enhance the slightly spicy pastry aspect of this tea from the North West of Taiwan.

Liu Bao Shen Xiang 1987

Thirty years of Guangxi's humid climate has benefited this aged tea, slowly developing its large curly leaves. Its opaque and rich liquor is velvety and deeply marked by its woody (root) and mineral character. Shades of leather and dried fruit (prune) accompany the fine scent of ginseng (Sen Xiang) that tickles the palate. A long mineral finish leaves behind a sweet aftertaste.
