From Xiaguan tea factory(Berylleb on Ebay)

Xiaguan Feitai 8653 Iron Cake Raw Pu’er Tea is good in quality, but is low in price. It is made from premium spring tea leaves and Diancang Mountain’s natural spring water. The cake is round and thick with fat leaf lines. With a mellow flavor and pure aroma. The tea was made in 2006. The tea leaves have change red from green through a few years’ nature fermentation, they have contained many elements which are very benefit for our health, and the taste is better than new raw Pu’er Tea.

This is one I had bought a sample of a couple of years back and just recently got around to buying it. There is a smoky flavor to this tea but it is not too strong. There was some bitterness in the early steeps but not too much. It did develop a mildly sweet flavor eventually but not initially. There were no unpleasant aged flavors to this tea, the sort of negative flavors teas this old often develop. That I think is this teas strongest point.

I steeped this tea eight times in an 130ml gaiwan with 8.2g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec,25 sec, and 30 sec. The tea was certainly not finished but as always I was watching my caffeine intake.
