Description

October 16th, 2020

This cake was pressed by Changtai's Chen Hong Chang subsidiary, and was supposedly made with Yiwu qiaomu material. This cake is certified organic to Chinese standards. I held this tea for just over three months to give it time to wake up from dry warehousing in Guangdong, as I've often found the change in material I receive from Guangzhou or Kunming to be profound over a period of several months.

I used a reasonably high ratio of 13.1g/200ml when testing this tea. The liquor was nice and dark, with both aged smoke and wildflower on the nose. This isn't the most intensely flavorful tea (yet): there are pleasant pine and aged citrus notes in the aftertaste, but this is really just a smooth and pleasant daily drinker without too much complexity at the time of writing. This tea does, however, have quite powerful cha qi, which I wasn't expecting. 

In later infusions, I noticed the liquor was thick and syrupy, but still very smooth. There is light, playful huigan here. 

I bought this cake with the hope of assessing it for long-term aging potential, but my supplier sold all of their inventory of this cake before I could get more! I believe this tea would have aged to be an even better daily drinker with excellent cha qi in a few years, but since I am no longer able to get more of these at the same price, I'm offering up three 100g packs for anyone who is interested in trying this tea. I like this cake enough to purchase more, if and when I am able to purchase more at the same price point.
