Xingyang uses qiaomu (wild arbor) big leaf material to press this unique cake. This wild arbor blend is full of wild forest flavors, and bold aroma, made more potent and deep from nearly ten years of aging. Xingyang’s in-cake insert emphasizes that the pressing and fermentation process on this tea was done with long term aging in mind, and the results are certainly starting to pay off.
