If you love our teas Harmony and The Old Way, Melody is going to be a real treat for you! Melody is from the same organic farm, way up on Li Shan at more than 2,000 meters above sea level. This tea was also traditionally processed and charcoal-roasted. The difference is that Melody is fifteen years old. This is a great chance to try one of these younger teas along with an aged example from the same farm. This tea was intentionally-stored, which means no oxygen, humidity, or unwanted smells in the tea like many aged oolongs. It was well-aged in a sealed jar and opened on its fifteenth anniversary.
Melody is deep and very complex with all the aged oolong ideas starting to ruminate and take shape in it. The liquor is rich and vast, opening in an endless bouquet of flavors and aromas. The Qi is in flight, but very powerfully so, like a dragon’s takeoff… This tea is great for enjoying or for further aging. Not only can you learn a lot about the aging of Taiwanese oolong through drinking this tea, but you will thoroughly enjoy doing so.
