Reserve Series Tasting: Aged Tea


Reserve Series Tasting: Aged Tea

Welcome to the Reserve Series with Red Blossom Tea Company.
In these exclusive tastings, we look at specific topics within the sphere of premium tea, offering a focused opportunity to explore the history, preparation, and appreciation of this cultural heritage.

Our first Reserve Series Tasting will take place at our San Francisco retail shop on Sunday, November 10 at 10am.

This tasting highlights the effect of aging on tea. Similar to wine and whiskey, tea is an ageable product that - when given the proper storage conditions - develops and evolves over time. We will look at how both pu-erh and oolong teas mature, contrasting two current-harvest teas with two aged teas from our private collection.

The menu for this tasting will include:

Wenshan Baozhong, 2019 - Our current harvest, this tea exemplifies the buttery, floral, and slightly vegetal notes for which the style is known.

Wenshan Baozhong, 1973 - An unreleased tea from our private collection, harvested in 1973 and transformed over five decades of natural aging.

Jingmai Sheng Pu-erh, 2019 - This maocha from Jingmai Village exhibits the floral, mineral and crisp sugarcane notes traditionally preferred in Yunnan.

Yiwu Sheng Pu-erh, 2002 - This unreleased tea has been aging naturally for nearly two decades, resulting in rich earthiness with notes of dried plum.
