Picked from wild tea trees and roasted in 2018, aged, and re-roasted in summer 2022 with careful supervision by the Nguyen Family and community, this oolong is a rare and special treat. Compared to aged pu'er, which has noticeably earthy notes, this aged oolong offers a smoky-sweet tasting experience. Enjoy this oolong for multiple steeps to explore its deep tobacco-like aroma and sweet and smooth flavors, reminiscent of toffee and roasted hazelnuts. Due to its aging and multi-step roasting process, this oolong can be brewed with water at boiling point.

    Aged wood fire oolong

    The wood smoke smell is fragrant but a little singular. Otherwise a solid flavor black tea.
