From Siam Tee Shop

ShanTee – part-fermented, charcoal fire-roasted tea of a large-leaved tea species that is local to the border area North Thailand/Burma and has been growing wild there in form of trees for hundreds of years. The tea looks back on a long tradition of use amongst the native hill tribes, Shan and North Thais.
Individual taste, coined by the charcoal fire roasting, little bitters, orange-brown cup, moderate coffeine content, but with the health benefits of green/Oolong teas. ShanTea is 100% organically grown!
Project ShanTea returns 20% of the turnover of all ShanTea sales directly to support aid projects for destitute refugees from Burma’s Shan State area.
This tea should be infused at a water temperature between 75°C – 85°C for about 3 minutes. The characteristic aroma will last undiminished for at least 2, mostly 3 infusions.

I’m glad to have gotten some more Shan Tee,Pending on how ya steep this one you can enjoy a few different flavor profiles, short steeps is more greenish kinda floral goodness and longer steeps gives ya more of a raw puerh kinda oolongish yummyness, I do so enjoy this tea. All the teas that i’ve had from Siam Tee Shop have been very nice i’m surprised more folks on here haven’t had any to review on here, if you enjoy raw puerhs, green teas or oolongs you should for sure try this one. also Please read about Project Shan Tee here http://siamteas.com/?page_id=501 :)



not sure if i have tried raw puehr before…. i forget….
but i love green and oolong teas! :D

Dry leaves, unpacked, light aroma of nuts. Wet leaves smell of cigarettes, flowers, smoke. Similar notes during tasting, with cigarette flavor being dominant, but overall a bland tea. Medium body, slight astringency lingers, no sourness, very slightly sweet. A long lasting star anise flavor lingers in the back of the throat.

Flavors: Char, Flowers

Another gift from kittylovestea

A decent tea

When I smell the leaves dry, I smell mustyness.

When I smell the leaves wet, I smell strong asparagus.

When I smell the brewed tea. I smell honey.

When I taste the brewed tea, I taste honey.

The color of the brewed tea is light yellow.

Specs via iPod:

Grams: 5
Temp: a little below boiling.
Cup size: 250ml
Steep time: 30s

I rate this a 76 because it is kind of weak.

Many thanks!

Flavors: Asparagus, Honey
