Old raw (sheng) pu-erh tea from the Thai factory that produces pu-erhs under the name Hong Tai Chang.

The tea is made by a Chinese master, a native of Yunnan. He has been making Pu-erhs for more than 40 years. Then he’s been retired and passed on all his knowledge and experience in producing and storing pu-erhs to his disciple, whom we’re working now with.

The material of 200-700-year-old tea trees, the harvest of 2006. Province of Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, 1300 meters.

The dry tea smells with bark, dried fruits, spices. In the taste, there are various dried fruits: raisins, dried apricots, plums. Light smoky flavor reminds of some Chinese raw puers and makes dried fruits taste more like prunes. There are some savory wood tones and spices.

The tea possesses powerful energy that relaxes. It can hold you in calm concentration for a quite long while.

Tea has changed over two years, in my opinion. It has become much more restrained, softer and lighter. I do not think that you can say unequivocally about these changes are positive or not - it's a matter of taste. I give it 5 stars, because I definitely like this tea. The aroma is quite bright, harsh, fruity with hints of leather and wood, reminded me of the Banzhang Sheng of the same years. The infusion is light, clean, with a slight tartness, turning into sweetness. On the palate the same dried fruit, leather, woodiness, perhaps a hint of spices, medicinal herbs. The combination of tones creates a picture of a heavy, aged tea, which is interestingly perceived in combination with the lightness of the infusion. The chi is explicit, meditative, the tea warms me well, and can set me up for both contemplation and focus on some work. I will be happy to return to it. Thank you!

I like it wildly in taste and effect, and I also think it's easy to brew, it never brewed bad at all. It's my favorite of the TEASIDE line. I don't drink it in a vanity. SAVING.

I want to thank you for the tea. I have not yet met such. A very thick, oily infusion. Prevailing notes of exotic fruits and wood, in the end even surprised - a little nut. The state is soft, pleasant, but for me it was not the main thing in this case!

Very good flavor. Body feeling is very relaxing.

I had this and the 0802 a couple of times and I it's hard for me to tell the difference, so I'm copy-pasting my reaview of the 0802 below.
I will add that I only posted my highly positive reviews of these teas only after I made sure to buy a cake or two ;)

The YQH comparison is justified, and so this one is recommended for those who can't get over YQH's strong and uncommon storage tastes.
The 0803(2) is a good gushu aged puer. Plenty of Plum, mellow though strong taste, plenty of steeps and good relaxing qi.
Highly recommended
