From Xiaguan Tea Factory (Yunnan Sourcing)

A classic recipe from Xiaguan tea factory but produced under the auspices of the FT label (Taiwan FeiTai Company). Potent recipe for long term aging.

I have had the tea twice now and this sheng is fantastic. It is 3 years old and smooth and sweet and will only get better. The compression is typical of xiaguan but none of initial smokiness remains. The taste is smooth and sweet with a ton of lasting feeling that extends deep into the throat and lingers in the back of the mouth. The color of the cake is quite dark for a sheng of only 3 years and it has mellowed quite a bit. The material has quite a few full leaves of roughly 1 inch in size. As I type this I’m on my 8th infusion and I have not had any issue with astringency or bitterness. Smooth as silk even with longer steep times if I get distracted. For a factory cake this thing is awesome.

Flavors: Stonefruits, Tea
