Xing Xiang Xiao Been is a cooked, shou puerh tea that comes from the Chun Ming factory. The name Chen Xiang, or “aged fragrance”, is given to this selection for its distinguished aroma, typically only found in much older puerh. Add this refined, unique tea to your collection to share with friends and family.

Break apart the packed leaves with a knife or pick. Rinse the leaves for a few seconds with hot water, then pour out the water. Next, steep the leaves in hot water until the brew is strong enough. Steep as many times as desired, until the leaves lose flavor.

An amber colored brew has a light aroma of umami. The palate is smooth, and fresh with a light lingering finish. Top notes of birch wood lead to umami mid tones with light, smoky endnotes.
