From Xiaguan tea factory(Berylleb on Ebay)

Xia Guan Nan Nuo Tribute Teardrop Raw Pu’er tea is made from the exquisite tea from old tree in Nan Nuo Mountain. The tea leaves are pressed with Diancang Mountain’s natural spring water, and fermented by the traditional processing skills of Xia GuanTea Factory. The teardrop is marked by slender and well-balanced shape, tight packed leaf lines, Tea leaves are fat and sturdy with white hairs. It brews a bright orange broth and mellow and full-bodied flavor and varied but balanced tastes with brisk and sweet aftertaste. It was Xia Guan Tea Factory’s high Grade Product. Every teardrop weighs 100g and has a simple but decent round box, fine for drinking and gifting. One teardrop in hand, you can both smell the aged aroma and enjoy Xia Guan’s offering.

Nice young sheng. Still has some of the astringency but less than other teas this young. My guess is since it is a tribute toucha then gong ting leaves were used to make it. Very good mouth feel, it has a camphor taste that last a while turning to a slightly bitter dryness. Has a salty almost “broth” taste to it with a little citrus in there too. Nice to be as young as it is. Hopefully in the years coming this will continue to evolve. I used 9 grams in the easy gaiwan 5 second steeps after a 10 second wash.

This one looks good to me. I’m starting to like those Tuo Cha shapes, the quality is quite good, in general. Apparently, it was a highly traded commodity in the early 1900s. Still going strong!

Agreed and these tribute teardrops seem to have a high grade leaf in them. I have the “Bulang” version should arrive tomorrow if the tracking is correct. After a week to re-hydrate in the pumidor I will probably get into it also.
