This is light for a pu-erh, though still flavorful. Smooth and pleasantly complex… apricot and smoke, with just a touch of astringency on the finish. It has a faint undertone of the typical earthiness, but even with that and the smokiness, it’s not at all dark. Because of its natural sweetness, this is also nice chilled.
Xiaguan Wild Seven Sons
This tea is produced from leaves picked from wild tea trees. It has very unique and complex characteristics that set it apart from other Pu-erh teas, one of which is that it has a pungent wild camphor flavor that is quite energizing. This tea, the color of gamboge when brewed, is an ideal drink in the afternoon when a “lift” is needed. It is also recommended for consumption after a meal to aid digestion. The tea is best on the third infusion and has great aging potential.
