Very nice and affordable tuo coming from well known Xiaguan factory. Jia Ji can be translated as "Grade A", and as it is clearly visible on the pictures there is a lot of buds in the blend.
Brewed tea is smooth and thick, still clearly distinguishable whiff of smoke blends nicely with woody and nutty taste with hint of vanilla and moderate sweetness. There is a tiny bit of juicy astringency, but no bitterness to speak of. We think that this Tuo is ready to be drunk now but its also affordable option for further aging, and it will become only better over time when stored in the right conditions.
This tea can produce many steeps and its quite energizing and uplifting.
