From Crimson Lotus Tea

The Xiaguan Tea Factory is one of the oldest in China. They are located at the foothills of the Himalayas on the edge of the Xiaguan mountain range in Dali, Yunnan, China. The factory is uniquely situated to channel the strong winds that travel down these mountains. They claim that it is these winds that give their puerh its special taste.

Xiaguan uses leaves sourced from many tea gardens in Yunnan. These leaves represent multiple years. Their blend is proprietary and a secret. These leaves are a good balance of different grades with some very large leaves, small twigs, and also smaller buds. The leaves are mostly complete.

This sheng puerh cake is a classic blend and very popular in China. The "T" designation implies that it was heavily compressed and is called an "Iron Cake". Xiaguan Iron Cakes have a reliable reputation for long term aging.

This raw puer was slightly smokey, lucerne and honey sweet with a bright mineral finish in the last steeps. The bitterness came and and went quickly, lending itself to many sweet nectar-like servings. I drank this tea daily until the cake was gone, and look forward to picking up another soon!

My boyfriend got this as a sample when he bought me some tea ware as a Valentine’s gift. It was a good sized sample and I picked a large chunk to taste today. I might try lower water temp on the next tasting. It is sweet, and a little acidic, with some bitterness arriving by the third steep. Light in the cup and in the mouth, an everyday cup of sheng
