It is a welcome treat for me to be able to try an aged tea that one of my customers bought from me years ago. Today, I got to try my old Yin Hao Tuocha puer from the 1980s. I sold this at my old shop about 8 or 9 years ago, and then again about 5 year ago when one of my suppliers found a small amount to sell me. My customer has been aging the tea in a clay jar for about 4 years and we, along with a few other tea friends who just happened to be in the shop today, got to try this delicious tea.
It is a beautiful color and shows great signs of proper aging and a maturing, soft mouth feel. We all agreed that it was a perfect Autumn day to enjoy this satisfying brew together.
