So far I have a very good feeling about this Thailandese tea. It’s subtle and strong in his own way. The aroma is somehow new for me, different from chinese puerh. Forest floor, cooking herbs, white pepper, anice. Elegant and slightly muted. The liquor feels drying, bittersweet, with a sour note. The body is medium thick and oily.
Has a strong and clean presence, with unfamiliar mouth feeling and aftertaste game. Not very dynamic but the energy is very noticeable, and gave me a sense of calmess and awareness. It’s my favourite of the thai teas pu-erh.sk is offering.
I noticed that if I keep drinking more than few steepings the relaxing sensation turns into a more stimulating (and anxiety-inducing) feeling. This applies to all the teas I tried. That’s a shame because I enjoy seeing the progression of a tea with a long session and many steeps. I should probably reduce the quantity of leaves and water.
