Deep Mountain Old Trees

There are harvests from less than famous areas that can be taste worthy. That is why each producer has their own products carrying more generic names as “Deep Mountain Old Trees”, and sell them at much lower price than those with names from more sought after mountains. Some are better value than others. To me, I think this Shenshan Laoshu from Huimin Tea Factory is worth at least three times its ticket value for a body and aroma worthy of a place in the famous mountain rank. It is actually one the best generic name discus we have ever tasted, regardless of the price. One reason they can do that is their collection points spreading deep in Lincang, an area famous for its many famous tea mountains.

Taste profile

Distinct earthy aroma with an overtone of camphor, accented with sticky-rice cooked in bamboo leaf wrapping, sun-dried fresh straw and a touch of Chinese liquorice root and peppermint. Sweet undertone. Silky body with dense mouth-feel. Earthy with notes of dried brownwort, liquorice root, apple cider and apple peel. Bitter first impact with instantly sweet, cooling, and cleansing aftertaste.
