Description

This is a Benshan oolong: a tieguanyin-like oolong from Anxi that is often sold alongside tieguanyin in Hong Kong. I bought 600g of this tea for myself back in 2013, and have had a little over the years, but much of it has been in storage ever since. This tea has aged beautifully! It was a good tea when young, but the years have really transformed this tea.


In the first infusion, I get sweetness, huigan and light aged oolong notes, followed by a fuel-like Anxi oolong note, along with stone fruit. After the swallow, date and fig-like notes arise. This tea is lovely and has calming energy, which I'm always a fan of. 

The second infusion brings out the aged notes much better, and they come to the forefront. Light sourness and berry notes appear as well. The finish is aged notes, along with the date and fig notes from infusion one. There are old book notes as well, which is a classic aged-oolong aroma.

In infusion three, the huigan returns. Aged notes dominate. Date and fig are still present in the finish.

This is a great tea, and I am only offering up 500g of this tea. Whatever is left is for my own consumption!
