Lao Cong Abandoned Arbor Anxi Oolong Tea (2018)

Lao Cong Abandoned Arbor Anxi Oolong Tea (2018)

A very special tea. This harvested from an old Qing Dynasty tea garden in Anxi Country, Fujian. Based on some analysis, the cultivar is likely to be related to Shui Xian. The garden has been out of cultivation since at least the 1960s.

The environment is excellent, away from another agriculture and with wonderful bio-diversity.

Mr. Chen has carried out some basic maintainance of the garden to allow access to the bushes and to clear excess ground cover, beyond this the site remains very natural.

The tea is produced in a very traditional, hand made style and wood-charcoal baked for several days.

This tea received 2* at the 2018 UK Great Taste Awards. The judges noted, "Excellent on the nose, a fine tea, delicate and subtle, with good flavours on the finish alongside pleasing creaminess." Learn more about the various awards that Wan Ling Tea House has received over the years: Awards

Tea Tasting Notes

Tea Appearance: Dark, long leaf with hints of red at the edges. Medium oxidisation >50% and a medium bake.

Tea Liquor: Bright, clear, golden liquor.

Tea Aroma: Particularly when preparing in a GaiWan the aroma has a both floral and mineral notes, whilst still maintaining that satisfying comforting essence which characterises great WuYi Shan teas.

Tea Taste: Soft and smooth Oolong. Flavours emerge, from initial sweetness on the tip of the tongue, through a well balanced astringency as the liquor runs over your palate to a long silky finish.
