High quality pu-erh tea material from 200-300 year-old tea trees. Chiang Rai Province in the north of Thailand, 1300 meters above sea level.

Even such a short ageing evidently affects the taste. This raw pu-erh turned out amazingly sweet and powerful. It requires careful brewing, but is not too exacting. Very intense taste, dominated by apples, strawberries and sweet dried fruits. Gentle aftertaste. Sweet and very strong sheng.

Riping with years will gain menthol, taste of prunes and raisins. The tea fills with tenderness, lightness, gentleness.

But sheng pu-erh is sheng pu-erh, you will definitely get a portion of cheerfulness.

We don’t press this pu-erh in cakes anymore due to small amount left and sell loose leaf only.

Excellent sheng, thanks, tea side

The taste is rich, sweet, and, as always in Thais, there are many exotic fruits, little flowers, bird cherry tartness and wormwood and slightly citrus (notes of pomelo in flavor and taste). But all this is very modest and quite noble. 6th infusion I've heavily overexposed, instead of 40-45 "kept for 2 minutes, no less." This is where appeared steamed apples mixed with wormwood bitter taste. The aftertaste is sweet, bitter-astringent, from the 4th infusion appears a menthol chill that instantly spreads over the body.

Feels like a mixture of Lincang, Bulang and YiWu flavors + some notes unfamiliar to me. There is something that distinguishes this tea from the Yunnan pu’ers, but it does not make it worse. The dominant is the bitterness of grapefruit, lemon peel. But the word "bitterness" doesn’t fit the description that much, anyway, I didn’t find other in my vocabulary. Generally, this sheng is powerful, sweet, and clear. Probably I'll finish it soon because it seems that with time everything that I personally like about him is going to die down. I hope, I’m wrong. It seems to me quite young, I did not feel these 2-3 years of aging. Now this is my favorite raw pu’er which I compare all the other shengs with.
