Surprisingly good offer from Yong Pin Hao for it’s price.
The taste is pretty unusual for yiwu: rice (very unusual for spring cake!), little bit of honey and cinnamon. Creamy and balanced with sweet aftertaste.
It’s “dark” version of yiwu pu and reminds me more autumn youle than spring yiwu.
Anyway it’s well-valued cake.
2008 Yong Pin Hao Yiwu Chun Jian Raw Puerh Cake 400g
This tea is composed from early spring old tea trees material from Yiwu area. Pick one bud and one leaf, traditional “sha-qing” (kill-green) processing in wok and sun-dried. Dark shiny buds and dark green leaves suggest a good quality material. Selected maocha was pressed by stone into this 400g pretty cake.
Clean and good storage in Kunming. Dried tea leaves still keep their original delicate fragrance.
The brewed tea is honey yellow with great light aroma of linden blossom. Extra smooth, mellow, creamy and deep in mouth with sweet aftertaste. Tough leaves can give many full and pleasant infusions. High-end Yiwu cake from Yong Pin Hao.
