From Liquid Proust Teas

A lightly processed oolong from 1995. Many things known about this tea, but as I often do I will keep mystery as part of this unique gem.

The tea is semi green and olive in person. Taste wise, I will not describe in depth but I will say that since it was lightly processed and it’s aged… there isn’t many fresh notes to the taste. With a medium to high viscosity, the aged (somewhat similar to a mid aged sheng taste) flavor that comes through, and the full leaf, there’s a lot to enjoy about this tea. Nothing to really compare it to!

Each listing is for 25g

Sipdown

LP sent a sample of this a while back when I joined a CLT group buy with him. I’ve finally got down to drinking the rest of it within the last couple of days.

The main note from this tea was ‘aged pear.’ I compared it to a stash of pears I tried from one of the oldest MRE’s (military ration) I have acquired (1994). Extremely caramelized, sweet, & tangy. The only difference with the tea was that there was a slight roasted note in each sip.

Received from fidgetiest, thank you :). 100C, gongfu, 5g/100mL but I will be leafing harder because this can definitely take it.
In dry aroma I am hit with some roasty honey, and the dry rinse reveals raw honey and honeysuckle floral notes. In the actual steeps, I taste richness, sourness, and roastiness, but the honey in the aroma is nowhere to be found in the drink. This reminds me of a dried fruit an aunt of mine offered me once in Mexico but I cannot remember what it was. Or maybe it just invokes a memory of her, I’m not sure. LP and I had a discussion about the memory-evoking quality of tea following my noticing two of his oolongs brought me back to childhood memories of my Mexican relatives. Or maybe I’m just feeling sentimental for once.
Steep 2: the leaf opens, I’m getting some tannic spicy notes in my throat like cayenne, and some aged sourness.
By steep 4 this is a weird tea, keeps bringing me back somehow, this time visiting an agave farm with my grandma.
Steep 5: tobacco leaf sort of aroma
This tea keeps on changing with every steep, give it a whirl. Maybe you’ll remember something precious.
