From Mountain Stream Teas

Buying aged teas in Taiwan is tough. Not only do you have to find a source that you trust, you also have to find tea that was of decent quality when it was put into storage. And it has to be the right storage as well! This tea, and its sister tea the Aged 1980s Oolong, are teas that fit those criteria. Decent quality tea that was stored correctly by a famous name in the tea industry. They taste that way too!

Finally a tea older than us, this 1970s Oolong packs a punch! Earthy forest floor aromas give way to a peppery spice sensation that shouldn’t be consumed before driving if you are susceptible to getting tea drunk. If you are, you will enjoy this tea!

This tea is also a great study for those interested in older teas. Notice the delicate, thin leaves that can only be produced by hand processing. The clear, rich, almost multi-colored tea broth that denotes the real aged of the tea and clear complex taste. While many try, it is very hard to fake the authentic depth of teas such as this one.

##The origin of tea this old is often foggy. This tea is no different. It was bought by a trusted source of aged Puer teas in the mid-1980s from a farmer that said it was a tea from the mid 70s, it has been aging in large casks since. While an origin history like that is not very satisfying, it is better than most for aged teas this age.##
