Crafted by Xingyang Workshop

Xingyang Workshop was founded by several masters from much larger Xiaguan to revive the ideals of clean, slow meticulous fermentation and small batch blending.
 
Thanks to their 50+ years of connections, Xingyang is able to flex their relationships for some of the best leaf material in Yunnan from wild, single-origin sites.

    This is not an official offering from Xingyang workshop's catalog, but rather, a pressing straight from their private reserve. Leveraging their sourcing connections across Yunnan, Xingyang's founders wanted to do an experiment featuring golden leaf, or Huang pian material similar to their famous 2002 Shu as a single origin sheng brick highlighting the flavor of Jingmai. The large golden leaves have a distinctive vaporous texture and citrus-forward flavor unlike classic sheng pu'er. While Xingayung only blended and pressed fifty bricks total, and we were able to get our hands on a dozen of them, this would be an excellent tea for long term aging to bring out even deeper textural nuance.

the Xingyang Workshop also recommends:

  • 'Whether it’s pressed with chrysanthemum and roses or stuffed into oranges and miniature clementines, there are few things more traditional that scenting pu’er. Adding traditional medicinal herbs and flowers to pu’er is, for many, both reasonable and delicious'
