Xi Gui Fall 2018, Sheng Puerh
Xi Gui is below Da Xue Shan and above the Lancang river; the environment is very clean. I met a very big collector and he only buys Lao Ban Zhang, Bing Dao and Xi Gui. Xi Gui is picked in the Teng Tiao style, and the taste, smell, and Qi are so unique that once you drink the real, high quality Xi Gui you won't forget it. I seldom use the term tea drunk; real Xi Gui comes pretty close, although I would say its much more clear than alcohol. I do still feel relaxed and comfortable.
Xi Gui is a very expensive area, and the fall tea is substantially cheaper. For the price we feel it is a great buy. There is slightly more bitterness/astringency than the Spring Xi Gui, and the Qi is a bit more active. I actually think some people may prefer Fall even if the price was the same.
