A unique aged shu pu-erh from an old Thai factory that makes tea according to the traditions of the famous brand Hong Tai Chang. The material from trees aged 200-500 years. By the way, a real HTC cannot be plantation tea, there are no Assamica plantations in Thailand.

The pressing is soft, the cake is easy to disassemble without a knife.

The taste is soft and smooth. Sweet woody and nutty tones are followed by a light chocolate bitterness of classic aged Shu or Lui Bao. This is the case when a truly wise and powerful old tea is hidden under the unsightly wrapper.

Please, pay attention.

Hong Tai Chang is one of the most frequently forged tea brands. It was very famous in its time... On Aliexpress and Taobao, you can find young tea under various covers of Hong Tai Chan. The description usually says it was produced in Yunnan. It can not be true.

The fact is, that even the brand is from Yunnan, it had been producing its tea from Thai trees and in Thailand. Yunnan material was used only at the very beginning, in the 30s, and then it was completely replaced with Thai one from old trees. Yunnan trademark and its office in Yibang was closed in 1949.

Only Thai tea manufactured under the brand Hong Tai Chang carries the spirit of that era, thanks to the original varieties of old trees and transmitted traditions.
