The tea has a warm orange color in the bowl. The strong camphor reminds me of some of the older cakes from Changtai which i’ve reviewed recently. This for me is a good sign since I’ve rather enjoyed those cakes. However, i find that it’s taste is a bit thinner, drier and woodier than i was expecting. The balance is still very good overall. The Qi is clearly noticeable though it’s not particularly strong.

Overall I find this a solid cake with a true pu’er spirit. It manages to convey some of what i consider to be the most fascinating aspect of sheng pu’er – it is wild. Tasting this tea i can feel the mood of the wild mountain environment where the leaves that make up this cake have been harvested.

It’s balanced even up to the point that I find myself doubting this is a cake for long-term storage. Its time is now or in the near future which is not really a bad thing considering the agreeable price it’s selling at.
