From What-Cha

A powerful dark tea with a rich wood and tobacco taste with developing apricot tones with latter infusions.

Processed in a similar manner to Yunnan’s Puerh (and known by the locals as Puerh) and is organically grown in the sense that the tea trees’ only interference from man, is the picking of the tea leaves.

Produced by the Shan people of Pang Kham Village from 300+ year old wild trees which grow either side of the Thai-Burmese border.

Um is this tea a sheng or shu? Or neither? It seems to have qualities of both. It brews up a dark amber colour. I’ve seen shu’s that have a really dark brew and this doesn’t have that. It’s got a damp wood taste. On the package it says it also has a tobacco taste which to me is not appealing at all. However, it’s not strong and is kind of in the background. Overall, this tea is very smooth with a nice sweetness in each sip. Not quite a sheng and not quite a shu. I have no idea how to rate this tea. I would need to have it quite a few times. Definitely different!

What-Cha

It’s definitely a sheng, aged in Germany!

From the What-Cha group buy organized by Liquid Proust.

Nose of damp wood with straw and smoke. Taste is smooth. Rich with flavors of damp wood and tobacco. Tastes like it’s much more than 4 years old. Smooth, “dark” flavor. Moderate complexity and cha qi. Good power and finish. I like it.

Oh, I can smell the damp rot now ;) Or maybe my grandpa’s stinky canvas-back chair that he sat in after he’d been gardening.
