Xiao Chi Gan means "Small Red Sweetess" in Chinese. Xiao Chi Gan along with Da Chi Gan were both called Chi Gan by the Wuyi tea farmers. The only difference between them is that the tea tender leaves unfold or not when they are picked. Tea made of tender leaves already unfolding is called Da Chi Gan. Otherwise called Xiao Chi Gan. Chi Gan (including Da Chi Gan and Xiao Chi Gan) is also often called as Bronze Jun Mei. By the name, you must be able to tell that among the members of Lapsang Souchong, Chi Gan (Bronze Jun Mei) is only second to Golden Jun Mei (Jin Jun Mei) and Silver Jun Mei (Yin Jun Mei).
The Bohea Xiao Chi Gan is made of tender tealeaves harvested from the Guadun, Tongmu Guan, the core producing area of Bohea Lapsang. Somewhat different to the traditional Lapsang Souchong, the Bohea Xiao Chi Gan wasn't dried using smoldering pine fire so it is sweet and full-bodied with charming aroma but not so smoky. Once you try it, you will get to know why so many famous people in history fell in love with Bohea teas.
