From JAS eTea

This is a Xiaguan “Fei Tai” or FT production. FT is a business which custom blends and special orders large quantities tea to be pressed in the Xiaguan tea factory. FT teas are intended for export to Taiwan, representing the highest quality Xiaguan teas. This recipe was first produced in 2006 and then again in 2008. The 2006 production now commands high prices and is arguably one of the most famous Xiaguan FT productions to date. This cake’s characteristics are heavy pungent cha qi that stay in the mouth for a long-time after drinking. The tea is entirely spring material and kill-green is done with care so the brewed tea liquor is a thick soupy golden yellow color. This tea can be infused 10 to 15 times depending on your brewing parameters. Compression is medium to tight.

Sample from a very generous Steepster friend – thank you so much.
5g 100ml gaiwan 200F
rinse/pause/flush steeps
This tea is such bright yellow-orange color. Tobacco notes, slightly floral. its quite bitter but then some sweetness comes out later. i was surprised that this bitterness didnt bother me at all. Couple months ago i would just spit it out;)
I did like it and i plan to continue tomorrow. Thank you for the new experience, my tea friend. I’m learning everyday

OMG this was an amazing sheng.

I drank on the leaves all day, towards the end just leaving them in my cup to continue to steep as I drink…

The first few steeps were a bit woody, but not in a bad way at all. There was some gentle smokiness too. No bitterness or astringency that I could find. Usually I enjoy sheng with a more bold fruity or floral taste/scent, which I did not get much of here at all, but wow, as this one began to open up as the steeps progressed and it sweetened, it was magical nonetheless! I guess I can appreciate the “sweet wood” type of sheng after all! I had a rough afternoon and the energy from this really helped me power through. Clarity in a cup! Thanks very much to my special Steepster friend for a sample of this one :)
