Horrors of the Forest, 1990s Taiwanese Oolong 25g


The last taste in my mouth before death was at the door. Whether it be food poisining, an axed to the back, a bear attack, or whatever. This tea is that taste; the sweat taste within the air whsiping to my taste buds. Moss. Wet wood. Metal scraps. Still water. Moist earth. Ungrounded soil.

This tea is me tasting my last moments on an autumn day as if my surrounding have providided time to notice the taste and sell... but it won't.
The roast in the back is like a distant fire of hope, rescue, or another day.

1990s oolong privately stored, bought, and now sold to you.

"Gutter water" as a family member described it. They also said "Smells like dirt, tastes like tea" - and they are not wrong. Notes of rotting hay, acrid potting sheds, and stale Weetabix. Surprisingly drinkable and mellows out after first handful of steeps.

Densely mineral. If you aren't thinking you want to try old potting soil in a cup, then maybe hold off. If you want something different and that tastes like an old wood forest then I can't recommend enough.

This tea lives up to its name! Another cool find from Andrew.
