It is rare that I drink an aged Yan Cha let alone sell it, but this tea had to be offered. 

This tea starts with a medium roast with a dark red amber color. 

The Body is medium to heavy. You can taste where the aging as smoothed out some of the texture but still leaves some to tingle on the tongue. This tea has not been reroasted so you taste much of the original flavor but also where time has made its changes. 

The aging is really shown in the sourness. This tea is has a balanced sourness that is akin to a sour berry.  

The original flavor and roast maintains perfect harmony with the qualities brought on by aging for a tea that is not to be missed.
