The other side of tea

2018 Yiwu Lao Shen Tai Sheng Cha

The Lao Shen Tai is a limited production coming from a small plot of Wang Bing’s ecological garden, where trees are slightly older and trimmed in the old-fashioned way. The trees which reach about two meters high are harvested in low yield. The result is a true high-end tea, complex, with marked tannins, and maturation which reminds that of an old-tree puerh tea, but at a much more reasonable price. As all Wang Bing’s teas, this one is the outcome of totally handcrafted transformation and compression performed at the farm.

Tasting notes
The Lao Shen Tai tea is an excellent contemporary raw puerh, with an exceptionally rich and complex nose, plant-like and spicy, flowery, and followed on the finish by touches of honey and yellow fruit. With the successive infusions, this tea reveals a nice framework, typical for mature trees, which supports the tasting and creates the length, at the same time preserving notes of roundness and silkiness.
