Recent Tasting Notes
This is a “40-year” aged baozhong purchased from a tea vendor in Pinglin, Taiwan. I highly doubt it’s been aged 40 years, but that’s the claim, so that’s how I’m writing it here.
Anyway….the leaves look rather dull and give a faint dusty earthy smell.
Wet leaves and liquor have similar aroma: farm, mushroom and boiled peanuts. In fact, I can’t shake this boiled peanut reference. it tastes like it, it smells like it.
Multiple infusions and the profile doesn’t change, but it does last throughout it all.
It lacks concentration and complexity.
