From Yunnan Sourcing

2011 Yunnan Sourcing “Autumn Xi Kong” Raw 250g
Xi Kong, Meng La county of Xi Shuang Banna
Xi Kong tea like Yi Bang is special in that it is not large leaf varietal but rather a primitive small leaf varietal that has grown in this area for hundreds if not thousands of years. Like other small leaf varietal wild arbor tea trees in Yunnan (Jing Mai), the flavor is lighter and more smooth, but the aroma is pungent and fruity.

This is my second day with a Xi Kong from Yunnan Sourcing which I purchased due to an older tasting note found on Hobbes’ blog. I enjoy both Manzhuan and Yi Bang shengs (from Mengla County of Xishuangbanna) and Xi Kong is located between these two so I was quite confident about my interest in Xi Kong teas. Even though it is from an autumnal harvest, it is powerful and full of character. Beautiful whole dry leaves yield a fresh grass scent. The dark gold tea soup has a pungent aroma with hints of flowers and fruit. The sip has an enticing mix of fruity sweetness and malted wheat grain with the occasional hint of bitterness thrown in to catch you off guard. Solid endurance (11 infusions so far). I think this was a good purchase decision for I do love this tea.
Note: as suggested, I did increase my leaf amount by about a third since this is from an autumn harvest.
