200-500-year-old tea trees material harvested in 2005. Chiang Rai province, northern Thailand, the elevation is approximately 1300 meters.

The taste is very smooth and thick. The tea surprises with its soft, velvety mouthfeel. The flavor has many semitones, it is all distinctly apple-nutty, with notes of wood bark.

Better brew this pu-erh with boiling water.

If you like thick walnut Shengs (raw pu-erhs), this tea is for you. Adjusting the time of exposure you can choose the most pleasant density of the infusion.

Fans of strong Sheng Pu-erh can indulge in experiments and get a nice lightly tart smack. The aftertaste is modest but very noble: still the same dried apples and nuts, but with the savor of raisins.

Brings easiness, makes you calm and thoughtful.

Brief (few seconds) steeps in 90 Celsius water.
Liquor is clear and dark golden in color.
Taste is smooth and fruity sweet, to the likes of raisins and honey.
Aftertaste is sweet with a clean finish.
Mouthfeel slightly dry and sticky, encouraging salivation.
Wet leaves are large, dark olive-green and brown in hues, and give off a woody burnt sugar in aroma.
This tea is less bold in character than the 2006 but gives much clearer brews, while also withstands many infusions.

Very good tea. Tastes of apple and oak flavors. I would recommend.

This loose semi-aged sheng is on par with the other mid-2000 HTC cakes,
which is to say it is great!

It is also very similar, and share the beautiful aroma and the fruity plummy flavor notes
(also, good relaxing qi and high longevity)

In differs in some ways, such as saline background notes, which remind me of the excellent TS '93 loose,
and generally a different feel.

I like it :)

This tea is a lot more about the mouthfeel and cha qi, but there are some unique flavors that come from this tea. I tasted a lot of fermented pears and apples that was accompanied by a strong pungency in the back of the mouth. Towards the middle steepings it was very bread pudding like with the pungency smoothed out a lot more and the mouthfeel becoming a lot more apparent. In the end was sweet mineral water with some dark chocolate sort of vibes. The mouthfeel was strong until the end and created a calming sensation throughout my body and mind.

"Male character". Strong but kind and caring man. Stable all the brews long.
Associations: oak barrel, tiramisu, tobacco leaves. Much more interesting after the 5th cup. It is easy to drink. But, different by the "vibrations" in the taste from the ones of the classic shengs. This tea has its own part, its own role. I would say that this tea plays in a different genre. But its play is very worthy.
