From Berylleb King Tea(ebay)

Xiaguan Golden Ribbon Raw Pu’er Tea cake is made from high quality spring tea leaves and Diancang Mountain’s natural spring water. The cake is round and round and smooth and marked by fat tips and stretched lines with white hairs. It brews a clear bright yellow broth with a strong flavor full of tea essence, balanced taste with lingering sweet aftertaste and pure high aroma.

I picked this sample up from Berylleb Tea on Ebay when I ordered a backup gaiwan. I’ve wanted to try some more Xiaguan stuff to see how it is, as I’ve enjoyed what I have had from this factory before. The leaf smelled quite smokey – I was a little worried.

Thankfully, the smokey notes did not translate into the flavor of the tea…at all! I was pretty shocked, because they were quite prominent in the nose. The flavors of this tea were decently simple and consistent. I got notes of dates with an appreciable thickness in the early steeps and a little bit of throat feel as I swallowed. A couple steeps in, the tea developed a slight floral flavor as well, maintaining a decently thick texture. In some of the later steeps, the sweetness became more honey than fruity, but the date/raisin notes returned in the last few steeps. Wasn’t a whole lot going on, but that which was there was pretty tasty. It would probably be better with age, but I find myself able to enjoy these younger factory sheng so long as they aren’t too smokey.
