2006 Loose Raw (Sheng) Puer of medium roast. The leaves have been harvested from a garden with trees from 100 to 500 years old, altitude is about 1300 meters.

A quite strong fire and significant aging give this sheng very original, dense taste. Warmed up dry tea exhales a sweet, fruity-woody flavor with notes of pipe tobacco.

Rinsed tea produces caramel notes in addition. This sheng puer is a little rude, with a male character, but that's interesting about this tea. It has a wide flavor spectrum: dried apples and raisins, lightly laced with dried apricots. And a separate, dense wave of wood and autumn foliage - sweet, with spicy notes. Aftertaste is long, smooth and full-bodied, velvety-woody in flavor.

This is a live, strong, warming-up raw pu-erh, perfect for those who miss the woods in boxes of city apartments.

Brief (few seconds) steeps in 90 Celsius water.
Liquor has an-almost clear dark golden color.
Taste is fruity to the likes of raisins, with a sweet woody note resembles honey and caramel.
Flavor is rounded with a sweet aftertaste and long finish.
Mouthfeel is somewhat dry and sticky, activating salivation.
Wet leaves are dark olive-green and brown tones with stems, giving off a woody burnt sugar aroma.
This tea is pleasant to drink and withstands many infusions.

for the price, kinda good.
it isn't on par though with the 2005 loose, or the other mid-2000 HTC ..
for example, it feels a little faded compared to the 2005 loose..

it is still made from good Thai puer matetrial, so you get a lot of the same characteristics,
and the price makes it compelling,
so I would definitely recommend to give it a try!

Very nice aged tea. Dried fruit, camphor and smoke all in one session. Excellent value.

I really loved this tea. It has a complex taste of tobacco and sweet woodiness that isn't subtle at all. The viscosity is likened to maple syrup. I got a relaxed alertness from this tea, mix that with the strong flavors and that makes for a great start to a morning.
