From Xiaguan tea factory(Berylleb on Ebay)

The tea is made from premium Spring solarized tea leaves and Diancang Mountain‘s natural spring water, experiences moderate fermentation, and special winnowing and sorting. The little tuo cha is thick with fat leaf lines across the surface, with a mellow flavor and pure aroma, the tea yields a rich ,fresh flavor. The tea leaves have change red from green through a few years’ nature fermentation, they have contained many elements which are very benefit for our health. It is a good kind of Raw Pu’er tea.

This was singled out by “Chairman Meow” this afternoon. The chairman was showed 2 choices and this was her pick. After making it she made a quick exit from the scene.
Brewed in the Gaiwan.
This was gifted by a tea chum because Xia Guan’s can be somewhat smoky. Well actually not somewhat but in about all cases.
The dry leaf has a little fruit and dried apple to it. I am thinking 10 years old maybe the smoke is gone. It was till I hit it with the rinse, poured it out and opened it up to inhale the aroma and it pops your senses.
Color is an almost bronze but I have 6 year old tea with more color. Probably due to XG’s tight compression. The brew is definitely full on puerh.
Full on woody, smoky, tannic ,citrus and bitter notes. The first 2 cups have been strong and punchy. It gives the slightest hits of sweetness as a quickly fading taste at the end of the swallow. It gives a nice feeling with a warming sensation as you finish.
Not for ones that don’t like smoke but it would be a nice one for those that don’t mind that or the bitterness of it.
