I’m drinking the last remaining leaves of my aged oolong from Taiwan. It really had a high fragrance and subtle character/depth that most oolongs don’t have. At the same time, you can tell it’s not as “fresh” as your usual Taiwan oolong. The leaves are very big and slightly dark, but compared with my new tieguanyin, they’re literally thinner — the tieguanyin leaves are thicker and feels more sturdy, while these are a little thinner and feel more like paper. I should play with tea leaves more and pay more attention to them. After you brew the tea the differences really come out.
