From PuerhShop.com

This premium sun dried green tea is made by famous Xiaguan Tea Factory, harvested in 2016 Spring from the high-altitude, and non-polluted environment, under Nanzhao brand.

The beauty about this tea is that it is a Maocha that makes the best of Pu-erh tea, and it becomes better when it ages. Brew it now, it tastes like a premium green tea, after a few years, it would age just like a Pu-erh.

The liquor shows in tan color, with good clarity, tasty with smoke note. It is suggested you use 6-7 grams leaf, take time to experiment different brewing length, water temperature.

This one is interesting as your brewing method determines if it comes off more as a green tea or young sheng puerh. Brewed in either a mug infuser or grandpa style in a chawan, it comes off as a decent green tea. Brewed gongfu style in a shiboridashi and it comes off as a more mild young sheng puerh.

Dry leaves have floral notes. Shiny yellow liquour with noticeable smoky flavor and some bitternes (expected for this age and pedigree), not sweet. Bring me about eight good infusions in a small gaiwan. Ifused leaves are small and mostly broken, few tips. Leaving aside our smoked nature is regular puerh. Perhaps it is a good gateway to Xiaguan world.
