Back in 2005, Changtai Tea Group was in its heydays. It was promoted as a premium tea company by a number of Hongkong and Taiwan merchants.
This tea cake was made by using Jingmai mountain materials that many considered as the most favorite for an aromatic and tasty tea. Pretty looking leaves and smashing aroma, it is good stuff.

I would say that this tea has aged well in the past 9 years. It brews a dark amber soup with wet leaves that have exceptional aroma. Due to the low compression, this tea does open up rather quickly – around the first or second steeping. The soup has practically no bitterness and a refreshing sweetness to it. I find it to have a high degree of astringency – a tea for those who enjoy the dry, puckering mouthfeel. Also, the soup seems to be rather 1-dimenional revealing only a fixed profile. A nice tea but nothing too spectacular, in my opinion.
