2021 Bai Sha Xi "Aged Gong Jian" of Hunan
This is a Bai Sha Xi production "Gong Jian" grade tea, which is similar to Tian Jian tea in every way except that Gong Jian "Tribute" grade is a tipper grade composed of grade 1 and grade 2 leaves.
This was aged for 10 years by Bai Sha Xi in Anhua county of Hunan before being packaged into paper cartons and a lovely wooden box in 2021.
The 10+ years of aging has given this tea an aged silk and cream aspect that comes with aging. There is smokiness present but with the aging it's subtle and welcoming. We'd describe this tea as fruity, smoky, and sweet, but with a lubricating and long-lasting mouth-feel.
Bai Sha Xi Tea Factory in Anhua County of Hunan is the earliest producer of "Dark Tea" (hei cha) in Hunan and the first to produce the Golden Flower bricks in China. Bai Sha Xi was established in 1940 to product Hei Cha bricks, then in 1953 they produced the first Fu Brick with Golden Flowers. They also produce, Hei Cha, Hua Zhuan, Tian Jian, and Qian Liang teas.
