1980 Aged Oolong (Rare/Limited)

32.50

It only took 36 years to create this spectacular tea. This is one of the most exceptional oolong teas we've ever had. Purchased on a tea buying expedition in Taiwan, we sat on a tiny chair made from a tree stump at a table made from that same tree. The tasting room at the garden was filled with people, but we sat in meditative awe as the woman brought out and brewed this magical liquid. As the first drop hit our lips, it made our eyes roll to the back of our head and without hesitation we bought as much as we could afford. It was one of the best and most precious purchases we've made and there is no more of this tea being sold on earth, by this particular farmer (who has won many awards for his oolongs over the years). Perhaps you will be one of the fortunate ones to try this very rare, exquisite oolong tea.

Strong notes of butter, passionfruit, simmered stone fruit and an aroma of fresh baked bread.

Sold in 1 oz size only.
