From Siam Tee Shop

Ancient Snow Shan Shoung Pu Erh Tea 1+2 is a ripened “hei cha” from ancient tea trees in Vietnam’s northernmost province, Ha Giang. Only the young buds, each with two leaves attached to it, are picked for this tea – of course, by hand. Like all teas from our producer partner in Ha Giang, the processing of their pu erh teas is rooted in ancient local artisan traditions. This, along with a genuine passion for producing tea, leads to a level of picking and processing excellence that is about unprecedented in the industry.

Third of 7 teas from SiamTeas Clubbox January ’23 – Tuyet Shan

Decided for western steeping of this Vietnamese shu-puerh, but I am already looking forward for proper eastern steeping.

I did two steeps, first with 90°C water and for two minutes only; second one was with almost boiling water and 4 minutes long.

Both were equally good, but I liked first one a bit more. It had got an earthy aroma like a cheap shu when dry (my W2T teas which arrived today don’t have that smell); but when brewed, the loose leaves instead of chunks, it got again that interesting red fruits taste and aroma, alongside with minerality and chocolate notes. I took a piece of dark chocolate with raspberry pieces and it was almost the same, but tea is liquid and that chocolate is solid.

A little bit of creaminess would make this tea a solid daily drinker, although maybe a bit more expensive.

I am again, looking forward to try more of those Snow Shan teas. They seem to be interesting, especially when they are prepared in Chinese style. Pu-erh or oolong seems to be better than “western” styles like black tea which was sooo boring. Rating on hold
