For this raw (sheng) pu-erh we use leaves from a garden with trees of different age, from 80 to 700 years old. The age of trees from which the material for “Dragon” has been collected is 200-400 years. This garden is located in Chiang Rai province in the north of Thailand. The elevation is about 1300 meters.

2016 was very successful for pu-erhs. Spring mao cha turned out tasty, bright and deep. So this sheng immediately entered our collection of single cultivar sheng puers.

The aroma of the tea is vivid, scented with the sweetness of tropical fruits. In the taste, the most readable are dried fruits, jam, and floral mix. Tea immerses in a calm contemplative state.

Try also our 2018 ”TEASIDE 0101” ripe pu-erh tea made from the same material.

Dragon is a universal and very complex symbol. In the East, the dragon symbolizes supernatural power, wisdom, hidden knowledge, the power of waters that bring life, prosperity and happiness.

I just tasted this puerh.
It renders red berries, strawberry in a very first infusion followed by the sweet floral note.
The texture turned smooth and sweet.
Congratulations and thank you for keep making fantastic tea.

The very case when youth is good for a good sheng puerh. Excellent sweetish-floral aroma, laced with berry notes. The cake is easily disassembled - beautiful raw materials. Bright, clear, transparent infusion with a pinkish tinge. The taste corresponds to the flavor. A large potential for improvement with aging is likely.

Great tea! Very soft taste! And the aroma of a dry leaf ... cannot be described. Worthy! Over time, will definitely become even better!

I liked this sheng. It is bright, it is soft, in some way it is caramel, in some way a little spicy. It's nice, I would even say good tea! I'm very interested in how it will be after a long time aging. And, dammit, I want more! Sincerely and with no doubt, I recommend it!
