In episode 50, Denny and James start a short series on Aged Oolongs with Camellia Sinensis‘ 1989 Hualien. A great introduction to aged oolongs, especially dry and clean tasting ones.

Fascinating to hear you gents describe the various flavours in the tea, as well as Denny’s obvious infatuation with it. Definately worth the price of admission!
Thanks for another very enjoyable video.
Something’s missing… the music!
Thanks for another great post. I really enjoy following your website every week.
I am very glad you guys did the review of aged Taiwanese Oolong. I have tasted a few very good aged Taiwanese Oolong thanks to a few Taiwanese friends, however like James suggested i find it quite hard to find good aged Taiwanese Oolong here in U.S. If i do found one, they are usually pricey, beyond what i can afford.
I wonder if you guys know if there is any aged oolong from Fujian, China that is comparable. I read some of the internet post that it is also fairly common to age oolong tea there, however i have not seen any website offers it. I have not look real hard though.
There are certainly aged Anxi Tie Guan Ying available here. I just not sure about the quality of the tea and the vendor. I ran out of my “tea budget” for this year as i became over excited about 2014 spring tea (or maybe because winter is over at Seattle). I will have to reserve some budget for aged Tie Guan Ying next year. If i found something worthwhile sharing, will let you guys know.
Shiuwen’s aged oolongs are worth investigating. My favorite was the “Aged Muzha TGY”. Stephane also has some though they can range in price quite a bit. The 2000 Alishan is interesting, have not tried his other two currently listed.
