This tea is referred to as "jin cha" by theTibetan people. The flavor is bold and stimulating, this brick also ages well. Xiaguan has producing the "Tibetan Flame"brand for almost 50 years. Until the 90's Xiaguan Tea Factory wasowned by the government and was obligated to produce and deliver these bricks to the Tibetan peoples living in Yunnan and Tibet.
