Product Description

Xiaguan tea factory has been producing the Xiaguan 2005 Baoyan Tibetan Flame Raw Pu-erh Tea 250g brick for about 50 years. It is consumed by the people of western Yunnan and Tibet as a staple. Typically, it is brewed as a component of Yak Butter tea. The brew consists of Pu-erh tea, churned yak butter, salt, and a touch of raw sugar also in brick form. Occasionaly, hemp seeds are added to the brew for a nutty flavor. This tea is referred to as "brick tea" by the Tibetan people, not Pu-erh tea. The flavor is bold and stimulating and the brick also ages well. Xiaguan has been producing the "Tibetan Flame" brand for almost 50 years. Until the 90's, the Xiaguan Tea Factory was owned by the government and was obligated to produce and deliver these bricks to the Tibetan peoples living in Yunnan and Tibet.
