From White2Tea

Wuzidengke is a Song Dynasty Chinese idiom referring to a story about a family who had five sons who all passed the governmental exam to become officers. The idiom is used in a modern context to wish someone a bright and prosperous future at weddings or special occasions. The cakes are bound together in groups of five as a reference to the idiom.

The Wuzidengke puer tea is strong, thick, and sweet in the mouth with an uncommonly complex fragrance for a ripe puer tea. It has only a tiny trace of duiwei [pile fermentation] flavor and is drinkable right away, but also fit for storage.

The cake is 150 grams of gongting [high grade, small leaf] material. There are five cakes in a stack, shipped in a storage tin.

Unwrapping this cake, only a faint aroma of duiwei was detected. This is my first ripe pu’er and I was worried about encountering this.
The cake broke quite easily, and small bits could be crumbled off by hand.
2 quick rinses and the first 15sec steep is soft, biscuity and slightly earthy. A golden orange colour in the piao-i.
I left the leaves covered for 30 minutes to open out and the second steep (15secs) was a treacle brown, now with hints of plum in the smell of the leaves. An element of fig in the taste and more earthiness coming to the fore. Still very smooth.
An enjoyable puer although little complexity so far.
