Description

Classic Xiaguan recipe from 1986, the 8613 is a very tippy “bai hao” grade cake. It’s powerful, complex and aromatic, making a great cake for aging. Our stock was stored in Dongguan (Guangdong) for 9 years, giving it a slight wet storage taste and floral sweetness. Xiaguan teas are the favorite choices in Guangdong because their tight compression and powerful taste is perfect for tropical storage conditions!
