Yuen Nuen Hong Tai Chang Sheng 2004 from god bless them......TEASIDE Teas out of Thailand!
The last of a really enjoyable tea. Sad day. Sure, I could have split it in two, maybe even three, more sessions but decided to go out with a bang and brewed up 8 grams of this wonderful tea and have made a day of it. Tea Side out of Thailand offers this pretty intense 2004 Sheng which is quite a changeling with each progressive steep.
Around steep five the stone fruit came on strong and so did the sweating and feeling of euphoria. Not the tea-drunk down and dirty euphoria of a good Shou but a Sheng-high, lighter, full of breezes, a slight shivering down the back. It's been a year since I got samples from Tea side, maybe it is time to get some more and order a whole cake of this very drinkable 2004 at the same time. My husband even liked it and was amazed at the difference in flavors he got out of trying multiple steeps! That's a first for him in regard to his willingness to try something and then come back for more.
