Xiaguan Jia Ji Tuocha (下关甲级沱茶), originally the abbreviation of Yunnan Tuocha (Jia Ji), represents all Tuocha made with Grade A Maocha (毛茶).

Xiaguan Jia Ji Tuocha, first released in 1902, was originally known as Zhengji (正记) Tuocha. After the founding of the People's Republic of China, the Zhengji and the Fupai (副牌) gradually evolved into Jia Ji and Yi Ji (乙级). Because it is cost-effective and has huge potential for aging, it has become a high-quality tea with great market value. It has been continued for over 110 years.

Xiaguan Jia Ji Tuocha is the most important product in the early days of Xiaguan Tea Factory, and it is also a traditional product created to date. In 1981, Xiaguan Jia Ji Tuocha was awarded the National Quality Silver Award (国家质量银质奖). This was the first tea manufacturer in Yunnan to receive this honor, and then successively won the National Quality Silver Award in 1985 and 1990. 

Xiaguan Jia Ji Tuocha is made by selecting the sun-dried tea leaves picked from the big-leaf tea trees (大叶种茶树) in famous mountains in Yunnan as the raw material. It has been processed through the exquisite centuries-old Xiaguan Tuocha traditional technology. The shape is like a bowl, tightly knotted, and the color of the tea leaves is dark, with baihao exposed. The taste of the tea soup is mellow and the color is golden and transparent.
