For this raw pu-erh we use leaves from old (mainly 300-400 years) tea trees, province of Chiang Rai, Thailand. The elevation is about 1200 m.

It’s our own production completely from harvesting to packing. Of course, we had to hire extra hands to pick up the leaves, otherwise, we would have a very little amount of this tea. But the entire production process is fully under our control from start to finish.

Mao cha for this sheng is prepared by classical technology. Sha qing ("killing the green") is carried out in a wood stove. Next, twisting and drying in the sun.

Our puer tea has come out light and floral. The taste is slightly tart, fruity-floral tones are in the dominant. In the background can be found dried fruits and berries. Experienced drinkers can notice faint "smoke" in taste. Leaves a pleasant, sweet aftertaste. This pu-erh gets high marks on tastings from the Chinese colleagues, and from European, American, Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian tea-lovers around the world.

State after drinking: calm, contemplation, tranquility. Just a small amount of this tea left, so we sell it loose.

Compared with Chinese peers, the infusion is very rich orange, and the taste is very mature. Saturated, even with some density, infusion, sweet, with a very bright taste, fruits and spicy berries. Easy to brew, first I brewed it with boiling water, and It did not kill me with the bitterness in response. A little bit of tartness appears with 3-4 steeps, a delicious aftertaste. Tried this pu-erh several times, the impression is not very straightforward. This tea seemed to me kind of unbalanced, "noisy". Not as a choral polyphony, but as the noise of a street crowd.
