Sheng (Raw) Pu-erh

2010 “Dreaming Bird” already seems pretty aged by the appearance and aroma of dry leaves. Infusion is deep, almost dark amber in color. Dried fruits are in the taste. At the same time, it has sweet fruity notes typical for young tea.

Shou (Ripe) Pu-erh

“TEASIDE 0302” fermented in February 2018. Tastes soft with sweet woody-nutty notes laced with fruits and lotus root. With aging, the woodiness gives out the barrel whiskey taste.

another great chance for tea education, as this set lets you compare semi aged raw puer to it's ripe version (the other sets of Thai puer are young material).
the transformation of the plummy HTC style of Thai semi aged puer into a dominate chocolate flavor is very interesting and also enlightening,
as you clearly see from that the Dreaming Bird doesn't have any chocolate in it.. so you see the divergence between where the raw and the ripe are going..
who knows where they will end up!
