This is a 12 year old Xiaguan T8653 iron cake. This raw pu erh iron tea cake had been stored in Malaysia for about 12 years.
This tea cake has ‘turned’. This is a term we pu erh collectors used in my tea drinking groups to describe a significant change in the pu erh tea that we had stored. This tea has gained a perfumed aroma and become very smooth in the taste.
If you had never tried older Xiaguan tea stored in Malaysia, you will be in for a pleasant surprise. There is nice mellowness and sweetness in the tea. The perfumed scent is intoxicating and you will now understand why old Xiaguan tea is very much appreciated in the pu erh tea community. The hot and humid climate of Malaysia had amplified the aging of this iron cake. A nice addition to your pu erh tea collection.
One tea cake per every unit order.
