Good clarity light amber color for the liquor of this 34 year old black tea. The nose is a touch earthy and complemented by layers of wood and leather. In mouth, this aged black tea is mellow, soft and quite thick. The tea clearly shows its traditional Chinese medicine side with layers of wood and liquorice in the aftertaste. Good sweetness, lovely length. To fully appreciate this aged Gui Zhou black tea, we suggest to use boiling water and an important tea leaves/water ratio.
