On the tea side site this is actually spelled Ming dee. There is also a special storage version that less expensive and wetter aged. This is an interesting HTC production. More floral and has notes that remind me of a hongcha and aged white as well as a sheng. I get nice florals and cocoa along with the woody aged sheng thing. This seems to have more bite than the typical HTC sheng. The qi is the deep calming yet alerting content feeling I get from most Thai teas. I still prefer the 0802 as it has more similarities to a nicely stored Yiwu at a reasonable price but this tea is very solid and gives lots of steeps. It would be a good choice for a black or white tea drinker who wants to try some sheng as it’s not overly earthy and has some nice top notes for a semi aged tea balanced by chocolate and wood. I can recommend sampling any of the teas from tea side

I’m not sure if I’ve written the name right for this tea, as I can’t find it on the website and I’m going on the handwritten tag on the sample here.

This sheng is produced in Thailand, not Yunnan, and will be the first sheng I’ve tried from Thailand, so I’m eager. The dry leaves in a preheated gongfu pot smell like wood smoke, wood, and a bit of must. After an initial infusion, there’s a bit of dried fruit and leather in the scent. I am still somewhat new to Puer so I often taste the rinse infusion just to see what it’s like (while many discard it, especially with aged sheng and shou). I am going to skip my impressions of the rinse because I think this tea is better after the rinse, so skipping the rinse, the first drinking infusion is a light amber with a thick mouthfeel. It mostly tastes like dried fruit, maybe Medjool dates and golden raisins, also wood, and there is a hint of pepper in the aftertaste.

Second infusion , more woody and leather notes and a more woody, peppery finish.

Third infusion is a good medley of all the flavors mentioned so far.

This sheng is enjoyable. It’s more on the peppery and woody side than what suits my tastes, but I think the quality is good.
