We’re fans of Xiaguan here. I don’t think it gets much better for the price. They have a certain smoky masculinity some really go for. It’s similar in profile to some scotch. These have been humid stored in Guangzhou since 2006 and have matured into a very pleasant puerh. They still have the characters that make Xiaguan famous, but are quite delicious. These will brew forever. They are very generous teas. After you think they’ve given everything then go boil the leaves for 15 minutes and try that. Still plenty of flavor and aroma.
