    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 over 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.


  • 'We got a ton of deep tobacco and savory sweet Japanese nori on the first infusion, along with an exotic cumin and nutmeg accent in the background. In later infusions, the savory notes faded to make way for sweet tulsi and elderflower as well as a hint of fruity raisin flavor.'
