2013 Chen Xi Hao – Gao Shan Zhai
£12.25 – £85.00
This is a very thick, sweet and slightly creamy tea with some raisins and vanilla in its initial infusions. It then turns into a sweet caramel profile that reminds me of my primary school days when old ladies in the neighbourhood would tempt us with some homemade caramel candies. Whenever I really like a puer, childhood memories and flavours pop to my mind. I can’t think of a better compliment.
It has been expertly aged in Xishuangbanna for 6 years and it is a very clean tasty sheng puer with incredible stamina. You can expect 20 infusions with this tea.
This is a Spring Gushu Chen Xi Hao tea that was a collaboration between Chen Xi Hao and Zheng Si Long.
