A small batch of this craft shu pu-erh was made from the material from 100-200-year-old Myanmar purple trees, harvested in 2013. I fermented this tea in Chiangmai, in November 2018.

Tea turned out to be very distinctive in taste - notes of leather, wood, and mixed fruit. It is brewed into a black, dense infusion and has good stamina.

Recommended for collectors who are tired of the standard taste of factory-made ripe pu-erhs.

I generally fell in love with all those border Pu-erh regions. They really got some serious and wild jungle stuff. This buddy was creamy fruity from the start like pickled cherries with a very cooling minty immediate echo to it plus a hint of dark chocolate in combination like After Eight.

Compared to the Thai craft puer TS sell this one lacks complexity and depth.
But while it's taste is more common, it is very strong, and the quality is high-
it'll take you a long time to brew it out, and the mouthfeel is very good.
So on a regular shop this will be the highlight, here it's a step down, but different enough to warrant a try..
