Aged Baozhong

From time to time I am able to find an aged oolong tea. These teas have been in storage for many years and periodically re-baked, a process that slowly transforms the color, aroma, and flavor. The best examples of such teas do not merely exhibit some preserved flavor, but instead have become something entirely new that can stand on their own as fine teas. The currently available 1996 baozhong is just such a tea.

Hongyu Black

Central Taiwan’s Sun Moon Lake region has a long history of making black tea (known in Chinese as hongcha, literally “red tea”) from the hongyu cultivar. Black teas can also be found occasionally in regions producing primarily oolong teas.
