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.

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.

4,5 g / 90ml teapot. Pleasant, dense, qualitatively aged. Muffled by time cigar bitterness and absolutely pure, cognac color infusion. Good sheng for drinking, when you do not need to concentrate and ponder. Relaxes consciousness by its own being and energy. This tea is not for every day, but it surely deserves to be in the tea card.

Good sheng. Compared with 0802 doesn’t have such a powerful flavor. In taste and aroma, there is nothing superfluous. The whole mouth is wrapped in the taste of a good tea. I drunk this tea, I looked out the window and happily noted how everything around rejoices in life - clouds, leaves of trees, light, etc.

6 grams per 120 ml. gaiwan, 1 washing steep - 3 sec., further steeps 3-5 sec.
I opened the pack with the sample and exclaimed "Wahahhhh." I mean it, everything was exactly as I'm describing: a very rich honey aroma burst from the foil pack. The exact association is candied honey and dried apricots.
The dry leaf is rather heterogeneous - different shapes and colors of leaflets. By the way, it seems to me that 2005 is a bit exaggerated.
When brewing, the same persistent aroma of honey remains and ... you know, I was fed as a child with one compound to grow taller: honey, dried apricots, raisins, walnuts, something else. So the aroma of the brewed leaf exactly repeats the smell of such a composition.
