This cake tea came from a private reserve. You could not get it in local market. The story on the cake can be found here: http://www.puerhshop.com/blog/?itemid=521.

The soup brewed is golden, full body, strong with overwhelming scent, a delight to drink.

I spent the later part of the afternoon & most of the evening sipping multiple short steepings of this Sheng, shared generously by Tea Explorer. Thanks!
The early steepings really did have an apricot scent, with a spiciness to it. The flavor built up in tartness in the early steeps, & then gradually mellowed.

I enjoy shengs, but I don’t always know what to say about them.

generous sample from TeaExplorer – Thank you. prepared in 4oz gaiwan. 195F because I’m chicken( not ready to face bitter notes). 5 sec rinse 5/5/5/5/10
Wet leaves smell strongly of dried apricots. its golden color, clear, smells kind of peppery and slightly smoky. Sweet. as it cools some bitterness comes but its rather pleasant. overall nice experience. dont want to rate due to lack of experience.

Did you find the tea at all astringent? Also, have you tried the middle of the cake? Is it also good?

It was a sample I tried. I don’t remember if it was astringent , probably not. But I like bold flavors , I’m not afraid of smoke( love it ). I hate when it’s bitter but again bitterness should be over the top . Slight is nice . I remember this sample as nice. It was a new experience for me at that time. And if I wrote it was nice, now I probably like it even more. I find cakes or bricks fr Puerhshop consistent.
