Thank you Google for eating my notes and all my open tabs!
I got this one out to review as I have wanted to get into it and a couple of friends were interested also.
I pulled it out to chunk off a bit and was surprised that it broke off easily. Most XiaGuan “Iron Cakes” are tough to get into. It broke off easily and I got I got my measure of pretty easy. I guess the pumidor may be working.
I gave a 10 second rinse and let the leaf sit for about 10 minutes to start brewing. It brews a nice deep golden color. It still has some of the smoke and punch of a somewhat younger tea but a deeper color.
It carries a good bit of bitter but in a nice way for me. Some hints of smoke and astringency but not in an overpowering way. It reminds me somewhat of another cake from about 2007 that I enjoyed.
Will it give you that nice Cha Qui?
A bit but not too strong. Huigan a bit. Nice notes of subdued smoke and camphor a little pucker of citrus in there as well.
Nice and aging well I think.

Nice, thanks so much! What do you think of the leaves? Does it seem rather chopped or anything whole in there? I’ve never seen the actual cake of this one.

I think this will continue to be a good performer in the future. Second steep nice as well.

There are some chopped but the iron cakes are always hard to break properly.

Interesting comments. Thanks for taking a look at it. Sounds like I’m better holding on to mine for awhile before tackling it. For me all Xiagun are tough to pick apart with their typically tight compression.
