A decent tea and an above average xiaguan production. After a year in my pumidor the smell is getting more complex: a nice mix of sweetness, wood, tobacco, some fruits and just enough smoke to make it interesting. The taste is similar to the nose with good sweetness, bit of kuwei and some aftertaste. Good durability without turning rough in the late long steeps (what is rare for plantation teas). Some residual astringency which should transform with further age. Not a tea which will thrill you but a good mid aged sheng with a refined xiaguan profile.

Flavors: Plums, Smoke, Sweet, Walnut, Wood

Boiling 5 g 2 OZ / 60 ML

Excellent review. Where can this tea be bought?

Thanks. Mine is from yunnan sourcing. they offer samples too, although the outcome might be a bit different than from a cake (as usual).
