From Tea Side

Origin: Thailand
Harvest: 2018
Elevation: 1500 m

This Pu-erh is made of the spring 2018 harvest collected from the unique ridge trees in the Mae Hong Son area at an altitude of 1500 m. The average age of trees is 400-500 years.

The access to this material is extremely difficult, so it is limited in quantity and its cost is high. This sheng is very different in taste from the other young pu-erhs presented in our store. The nobility and refinement of its taste are comparable to those of Chinese pu-erhs from Bing Dao region. In a rich, but at the same time classic flavor of tea, you can find milk caramel, toffee, a multifaceted palette of sweet floral scents and honey fruit notes.

Among the last ones you can, probably, identify sweet and sour mango and plum.

In the taste, there is the light herbaceousness of the young pu-erh, richly decorated with floral caramel, sweet plum, and flowery honey.

The aftertaste is long, oily with floral tones.

This is a very clean tea, maybe a bit too much so. There’s no doubt it is gu shu material, but I don’t think the experience justifies the price, ultimately.

The profile is floral, herbaceous and bitter at first with notes of grass, milk, guava, and honey. Towards the end of the session, it gets pretty sweet too. Aftertaste is cooling with a lot of high florals and additional flavours such as peach and olive. The mouthfeel is oily with basically no astringency present – nice, but pretty standard at this price point.
