2008 Xiaguan FT "Nan Zhao Tuo Cha 100g
This production is new for 2008 based on the \“Nan Zhao Tuo Cha\” that was first released as an \“FT\” (Fei Tai LLC of Taiwan) production in 2004. The FT releases were originally all sent to Taiwan, but nowadays some Guangzhou tea sellers and collectors are starting to stock these premium teas! The Nan Zhao tuo and round cake are not the same product. Different blend is used for Tuo and Cake! Nan Zhao (means Southern Edict) Brand is the brand most often used to stamp Fei Tai products. Other Xiaguan Brands include: White Crane, Bao Yan (Holy Flame or Tibetan Flame), Horse\’s Back and the Big G. The Nan Zhao Tuo Cha is composed of high quality blended material from 2006 and 2007. There is a balanced flavor present and a full thick textured brew that soothes the mouth and throat. An extremely limited production! Production Stamp: 2008

This is a tea I got from Angelina’s quite recently, it was fairly inexpensive but it is still kind of a young sheng. This is a very aggressive tea, smoky and bitter in the first few steeps. I found it helped to lower the water temp. to about 180 and do very short steeps with this one.

It definitely started mellowing out around steep #4 and then became more woodsy with some interesting plummy flavors, definitely sour but with a bit of sweetness too. I am picking up some tobacco notes. I would say this is fairly typical of a traditional young sheng. Sorry I don’t have time to write more about it today.

I’ve tended to like Xiaguan products in the past and this is definitely an energizing tea but it seems like it needs a few more years of aging before most people would really like it (including myself!) I know this isn’t exactly a connoisseur’s tea but since it was cheap it will be interesting to see how it ages in the my closet, lol
