I bought this cake as just an experiment to see how similar it was to other 75xx recipes I’ve had and at $10 for the 5 YO beng I thought I’ve bought crappy tea before. I’ve now brewed this tea two or three times and I have to say it is indeed excellent. Todays brewing struck me as being creamy… I did a brief rinse infusion and drank the second infusion. I was amazed when I perceived a thick and creamy with a distinct flavor and texture of sweetened whipped cream in the first infusion. This continued through the second as well though the color of the liquor was a much deeper darker red. I would not call this a complex tea but I would call it a very good to excellent tea and just as enjoyable as the more traditional (and pricier) Da Yi 75xx offerings.
