This item is a limited release from the Xia Guan Tea Factory. It was compressed in 2011 with 2005 high end raw puerh tea leaves. Only a few thousands cases were made and they all were bought by a Guang Zhou pu erh tea seller. The recipe used for this pu erh beeng cha is very similar to the Jin Se Yin Xiang from the Meng Hai Tea Factory but with that flowery character that define Xia Guan Tea Factory. The beeng cha exhibits high quality tea leaves and a nice clean surface. Very good level of compression, which will allow the tea to age well. The first infusion releases a clean brew, in the cup and in the mouth which show that the material was stored properly while waiting for its processing. A rare and beautiful pu erh tea that is a must have in any pu erh tea collector’s inventory.

10g, approx. 100ml
Tightly compressed smallish leaves which rested for a bit after rinsing.
Wet leaf smells like mossy wood, spice and ample smoke.
Taste is like smooth wood, menthol/camphor?, smoke and a hint of dark fruit in the background. Both sweet and bitter.
Steeped several infusions and saved leaf for another time.
Very nice, and am really happy to have been given this to try! :)

Breaking this one out tonight for the for the first time. Broke off about 12 grams for this one. Brewing in a new Yixing from Enjoying Tea.
It has the typical XiaGuan “tight” compression to it as I tried to pick out enough to brew. It was difficult to break the chunks I pried off into smaller pieces to infuse with.
The aroma of the dry leaf had a mossy peat moss smell to it. I gave it a flash rinse of about 5 seconds to wake it up some. I really think I should have gone longer due to the compression.
First brew good amber color, some smoke with a touch of bitter and drying at the end of the sip. Lighter than most Xia Guan at this stage probably should have steeped a bit longer.
Second infusion about 10 seconds color is good and the brew is much stronger. Much more smoke to it some floral and bitter and drying astringency that turns to a soft sweet barely noticeable on the end. Hui Gan is nice on this one and you can kind of “feel” the older leaf pushing up in the later infusion.
Xia Guan lover’s would like this one.
