15 Tasting Notes
I really enjoyed this one. It probably has (for me) the best price/quality ratio from teas I’ve tried from EoT. Its energy is very good, the tea tastes nice and complex. I could not find any weakness. More notes at: http://jakubtomek.blogspot.com/2012/03/1980s-bamboo-wrapped-tuocha.html
A fine aged tea, nicely priced. It has still remains of youth in it, a lot of strength. More notes at: http://jakubtomek.blogspot.com/2012/02/1997-hen-li-chang-bulang.html
Very nice, dry stored (maybe too dry) tea of sufficient complexity. More notes at: http://jakubtomek.blogspot.com/2012/03/1998-cnnp-you-le.html

I generally rather enjoyed this one. Nicely aged, very smooth and pleasant.
This is one of the best Jinuoshan TF You Le cakes I’ve had. Probably the second best. It’s rather quickly aged, however not too much, no wet storage smell is there.
Very powerful, fruity, flowery, definitely an easy-drinking and enjoyable tea with good potential for further aging I dare say.
I rate it a little lower than the 2004 Jinuoshan TF You Le early spring 400 cakes as it is not as refined and complex. Still a great drink…
