From Xiaguan Tea Factory

Menghai is famous for Beeng Cha, and Xiaguan is famous for Tuocha, they are the most famous tea plantation area in Yunnan. Xiaguan Te Ji Tuocha was recognized as one of the finest Green Tuocha in the world. The tea has a very refreshingly sweet aftertaste, it may be drunk immediately or put away for further aging.

Wet leaves are showing heavy aromas of smoke and tobacco and that transfers to the tea itself. Still slightly bitter but really heavy on smoke and tobacco. I find it, ultimately, a onedimensional tea without much complexity. It has a stong ‘huigan’ but accompanied with dryness in your mouth.
After 8 infusions the flavour profile doesn’t change at all and starts to become slightly boring.
I cannot see myself drinking this tea regularly cause of its signature Xiaguan smoke and simpleness. I like my teas lively and complex even if they are more bitter. I tasted the ’09 version of this tea and liked it a bit more, go figure!

I picked this up from Dragon Tea House for a reasonable price thinking I’d get a nice 10 year old aged tea… but there’s barely any age to speak of. I’m wondering if they sent me a newer year by mistake or if it was just stored extremely dry or was sealed up…?? This thing is greeeeen. I started enjoying it though once I adjusted my expectations. It’s super tightly compressed which is annoying but workable. And the flavor is green but sweet, like chewing on sugar cane. It’s a little dry. Some bitterness/astringency still if brewed too hot/long. I’m not tasting any smoke or tobacco like everyone says they get from Xiaguan teas. All said, it’s an enjoyable and unique tea, if a little one-dimensional.

Flavors: Sugarcane, Vegetal

what the color of the soup? Pale yellow, bright, orangish?

Brian Dougher

I’ll have to pay more attention next time but I’m thinking pale yellow, maybe even green

2004 Xiaguan should not be pale yellow,even if it was dry stored. Also what was your parameters ?

Brian Dougher

I’ll revisit this one soon, and take better notes :)
