Very good value :) A lot going, complex and reminds me a little of xiaguan but without the smoke and more bitterness

This is a higher grade of tuo, but the price is not too much steeper. I really like these, their packaging is sooo cute!! If you buy any much older than 2007, the price goes up a lot though :(
Very delicate!! Too delicate for the price, though. I expect a Nan nuo to have more floral potency than this, and more astringency too!!
I would have given it a higher rating, but the price is too high for the quality. There are better Nan Nuo teas out there, imho :)
The smokey tobacco Xia Guan flavor fades pretty fast in this one!! It is almost not there.
I think mine was stored somewhere humid for most of the tuo’s life, because the change is pretty big, it tastes older than 2005. The vendor I purchased from said it was in Guangzhou for several years, which makes sense.
This oolong is totallllly average. And I hate that they call it “monkey picked”. The price is so high and the quality is just bad.
