2017 Xiaguan "For Taiwan #6" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake

$23.00

Brand: Xiaguan Tea Factory

Weight: 1 Cake (400 Grams)

A re-production of a classic "Fei Tai" production.  The original production used the highest quality early spring teas and Cang Shan Mountain spring water for compression.  Less than 20 years later this cake is being sold for $500-$600 USD!  While the 2017 production may not reach that price level as quickly as the 1999 production, great attention has been paid to producing a cake that is equal in quality.  The tea has typically strong and pungent cha qi, while the thickness of the tea in the mouth is felt.  Compression is relatively tight, but not as tight as the Xiaguan iron cakes. This is optimum tea cake for long-term aging, but could also be enjoyed immediately by those aficionados of young sheng!
