This tea is a 2009 vintage xiao dui zi “Small Pile” shu pu er from Nannuo mountain.  Small pile (xiao dui zi) fermentation is a small-scale version of the traditional Wo Dui “Wetting and Piling” technique used to produce shu pu er in the factory setting.  Using smaller quantities of single-farm tea necessitates modifications in the process to account for the differing dynamics of a small pile.  This particular batch is so named because it has a smooth, buttery mouthfeel and an aroma evocative of petrichor, the smell of the earth when it rains. This tea’s 10 years of age have given it a potent, grounding and mature qi with smooth, robust macadamia and hazelnut notes atop leathery peat and earth flavors. This tea may be brewed espresso thick without becoming bitter.
