Classic shu puer tuocha from Xiaguan tea company. As most of the ripes from that area of production , also this one prefers lighter infusions to achieve sweet tea soup with hint of caramel and dark chocolate and touch of smokiness. Harder steepings might bring up some sour notes as typical for Lincang or Baoshan areas. Dry walnuts notes from brewed leaves revealing clean fermentation and storage.

Perfect daily drinker
The Xiao Fa Tuo is a trademark classic ripe pu'erh from the Xiaguan factory. This tea has a perfect blend of ripe earthiness and mouth feel. The fermentation flavor is of course still noticeable in such a young tea but not at all offensive. This is a hard compressed tuo that is typical for good factory ripe: reliable, very easy to drink with enough complexity to be interesting. Recommended as a daily drinker and as an introductory tea for inexperienced ripe drinkers. Also, the round cardboard box is very nice if you choose to get it.
