2007 Xiaguan FT#4 Raw Pu-erh Tea - Sparrowtail Teas

2007 Xiaguan FT#4 Raw Pu-erh Tea

Regular price $10.00 Sale

Xiaguan's FT series was said to be for the Taiwan market, and from higher grade material than their standard offerings. This cake is composed of excellent-tasting tea, bearing a rich, complex taste with a highly energetic effect.

The taste is sweet, but not too sweet, slightly astringent in the first few steeps, with layers of woodsy smokiness and a cooling hui gan with camphor-like notes. It's rather tightly compressed, so care should be taken splitting it up, and the first steep/rinse should be a relatively long one to best open up the leaves.

Each $10 listing is for 40g.
