This tea is Xingyang's crowning achievement. It is made with big leaf picked from ancient wild trees. The loose leaf is stored and slowly fermented in low moisture over one year and finished in 2003 for another eleven years of dry fermentation before being packed in 2014. The result is the sweetest, cleanest and deepest shu pu'er we have tried. This tea can be steeped over twenty times and yields a beautiful clear brew with a deep forest flavor and lingering aftertaste.
'The aroma is deep and earthy, like walking into an old mossy forest. Despite the mature aroma, the brew is crystal clean, and the tea is translucent and beautiful. The taste is sweet and sparkling, and the refined flavor lingers on the palate for hours. The woody cedar notes are aromatic like sandalwood incense.'
