This stone-pressed cake of big leaf sheng pu'er is made from old growth 100 year plus 'Qiao Mu' leaf and silver buds blended for a perfect smooth sweet Xingyang flavor. This cake is less than three years old, yet it is full of complexity. The dominant camphor notes are very promising for aging. The sweet aftertaste and smooth mouthfeel make this cake a great example of the Chinese "classic" idea of what great sheng pu'er should be.
