Aged oolongs are something I rarely hear about and I just recently even found out existed. I’m starting to see them pop up more and more on online tea shops when I browse and it’s getting me curious.
Are they aged in a similar way to pu-erh and do they exhibit similar flavor characteristics? I imagine they might be a little more complex then a lot of pu-erh. Anybody have any experience with these?
Kwinter-We sell a fantastic aged oolong as well as a few puerhs. Aged oolongs are quite different than puerhs and typically aren’t as earthy. The aged oolong that we sell has notes of honeysuckle, bark, and grass and is sweet.

Thanks. :) I’ve been planning to make an order from you for some time now, I’m just on a tight budget so I’m pretty much limited to buying from one or two vendors a month. There’s too much great tea out there!
You’re welcome! Well, if you end up making a purchase, let us know that you are Kwinter from Steepster and we will be sure to throw in some extra samples for you. :)
Butiki Teas is worth every cent :D the only oolong I’ve tried of hers so far is Peach Oolong but it was really good (when I did it right) sadly I’m out now but my other order will be here in the near future. With it will be some more oolongs :D
Thanks so much Helena! I hope your order arrives shortly. :)
I think my tea money for next month is going to Butiki, I just keep hearing awesome things.
So glad you are hearing awesome things about us. Let us know if you decide to purchase something and we can add some extra samples for you. :)
