From Lazy Cat Tea

Laocong Xiaozhong 2018
Tea- Black Tea (Not Smoked)
Harvest – Spring 2018
Origin – Tongmuguan, Wuyishan

This tea was produced in Tongmuguan, Unesco world heritage protected area where tea trees grow in a pristine environment. Unlike most areas of Wuyishan that are at relatively low elevation, Tongmuguan is situated at a much higher altitude of around 1000mt.

This tea is made from older trees (laocong) left to grow freely in Tongmuguan. Tree reaching a certain age gives tea a special flavor called “cong wei” or old tree flavor. We don’t know or care about the age of the trees used to make this tea. What we care about is that the cong wei in this tea it is very clear making it quite special and nice to drink. It has a clean tasting balanced sweetness and low fragrance with soft mouth feel and will last many brews producing a sweet lingering feeling in the throat.

We don’t recommend this tea for beginners as the qualities that make it special might not be noticed.

To get an idea of the differences in Xiaozhong taste we can suggest to try our Hongcha Tasting Box.
