Ordered this a while ago, never got to reviewing till now.

This cake, unlike some others I’ve tried, can easily be broken with bare hands so measuring the right quantity is not a problem. Actually it can be broken into separate leaves.

The liquid is clear and on the yellowy side and the leaves can be steeped quite a few times. I’ve got up to 6th and I probably could go on further.

The main characteristic of the taste is that it is very deep. More so than JKteashop’s 2005 Xiaguan " Wild Tree" Raw for example. While I enjoyed 2005 Xianguan it was a bit too sharp for me. The 2006 Yong De Min taste very much alike, but it is much softer and quite a bit deeper. Which is welcomed. The taste itself if kinda “prunish” but there is more to that, I just can’t place it.

Overall: a very nice tea that can be drunk on almost a daily basis without getting tired of the taste too much.
