    Aged oolongs are rare in the world of teas. Unlike pu-erhs that change through microbial activity, oolong leaves age naturally. And whereas pu-erh teas are considered "living teas" that must be exposed to air, aged oolongs are often kept sealed as they age. This tea was sourced in the mid-80's,...
