A black tea cake made by Xiaguan? I couldn’t resist giving it a try.

Comes in a nice box, cool wrapper, good looking leaves.

In the cup it’s a good quality, strong, pretty “standard” example of a Yunnan black tea with malt, cocoa, and sweet potato notes with a hint of Xiaguan smokiness. Nothing super special, but it’s a solid, affordable daily drinker black, especially for those who like a bold brew in the morning.

Flavors: Cocoa, Malt, Smoke, Sweet Potatoes

I have had my eye on this for a while. Good to see someone try it. I’m generally not a big fan of black tea cakes as it leads to unecessary leaf breakage, but this would be handy for a longer trip in terms of saving space while packing.

Yeah I hate tea waste/dust. Luckily it’s pressed on the looser side, definitely not like Xiaguan’s tuos haha.
