From Tea Side

Origin: Thailand
Harvest: Winter 2017-18
Elevation: 1200 m
Trees’ age: 200-500 y.o.

Black tea from 200-500-year-old Thai trees of winter 2017-2018 harvest.

Made by a unique technology: oxidation of twisted leaves goes while drying in the sun. It has a bright and delicate floral taste. Holds infusions as well as good sheng pu-erh from trees. In China, this kind of tea is also called Shai Hong which means “dried in the sun”.

Without distortions in taste, so common for black teas of mild oxidation.

No doubt It will be finely aging.

A very nice Shai Hong from Thailand here. It has a well-defined profile of the sweet woody and mineral kind and a medium to full body. One can also steep it for a long time before the extraction speed falls below an acceptable threshold.

Before the rinse I get aromas of leather and dry earth. On the other hand, wet leaves smell more sweet and spicy with notes of molasses, rose hips and incense. The liquor texture is somewhat colloidal but still pretty smooth. It does carry some decent astringency that persists into the very sweet, rustic and floral aftertaste. The primary body feeling from this tea is definitely a warming sensation that spreads throughout. It’s a very nice winter tea and it’s also good for working since it isn’t very mind numbing.
