Eucalyptus, Charcoal, Sour plum

Old Days are made from the broken leaves of a strong, roasted Wuyi Shui Xian Rock Oolong. Pressed into blocks and aged for more than 10 years, the strong roasted notes that were originally present in this tea have mellowed out, making for an easy-to-drink everyday tea.

STORAGE

Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
