This stone-pressed cake of big leaf sheng pu'er is made from old growth 'Qiao Mu' leaf and silver buds blended for a perfect, smooth, and sweet Xingyang flavor. This cake is only about five 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.
