Thinking about this tea for me is in regards to value and longevity. I find that this cake is rather cheap at 14cents a gram, but if you know YS well then you understand that waiting for a % off is always in the near future.

7g, 100ml, 95c

The brew is very much still in a young stage which makes it easy to compare to it’s cousins from 2011,12,13,14,15,16… whatever else you have. The liquid is still a shade of yellow, but not golden. The aroma is rather faint and like the taste, it is transitioning slowly. I believe this is the type of material that retains a sweetness over time. This is how I can see the raisin taste being associated with it; a little darker of a taste than a light one due to the autumn versus spring, but it is there.

Easy to brew. After six steeps, I started pushing the tea to find that it isn’t as pleasant as the 2015 when over steeped which is the opposite of what I was thinking. I believe this tea is a great value and one to drink over time and watch it develop, but not the best tea at the moment; by no means is it bad either, just more potential for the future than now.
