This little cake is pretty tightly compressed. I broke out the needle and the flat blade to get into this one. The leaf pried off are smaller than most sheng leaves. The dry aroma is almost an oak woody scent. I did 8 grams in the yixing with a 5 second rinse. The wet leaf had an almost metallic scent to it. The first infusion of about 10 seconds yielded a dark amber color. It has a very light scent to it with a good hard hit in the flavor department. It is an upfront slightly bitter and astringent note with hints of pine and the familiar tingle of the camphor from the tea. It has a nice thick sense in the mouth. It is not an overly complex tea but it leaves a nice mouthwatering sweetness to it. The flavor notes carry on for a while after drinking a few sips of this. Nice and upfront and no beating around the bush with this one. Punchy ,upfront and drinkable to be as young as it is.
