From Chawangshop

“Youle qiaomu” is custom-made product from Kunming TF. The Maocha came from Youle mountain (also called Jinuoshan, Jinuo mountain). The Youle mountain (also called Jinuo mountain) is one of Six Famous Tea Mountains in Xishuangbanna.

This cake is composed of early spring material from arbor tea garden (qiaomu). The maocha comes from traditional old place and has been traditionally and primitively processed by the Jinuo minority and carefully pressed into this raw puerh cake. In Former Years stored in humid Xishuanbanna warehouse and later moved into dry Kunming storage. It is with the proper smell of tea, and no extraneous matters and moldiness. The original aroma of tea leaves was lightened.

Deep orange aromatic tea soup, scent of fruit and honey. Mature full and sweet fruity taste is very pleasant. Late infusions are sparkish golden, sweetness is backed up by fruity, ripe flavors. Aftertaste is long and intensive. Tea leaves after brewed are dark green copper.

This cake is a nice piece of sunshine conserved in Chinese leaf. Youle has easily become one of my favourite areas, I like its bittersweet taste, changeable profile, it is never boring and as far as I can say thanks to my brand new experience, it ages nicely.

As I do not have much experience with aged tea, I really cannot say much about its expected characteristics. I can only tell that to me, it tasted almost like some lighter excellent shupu. It is rather sweet and earthy, less fruity and flowery but still sweet. It smells wonderful, like a mixture of old wet leaves and soil with all its richness and beauty.

Drinking this tea, I enjoy the sweetness which turns into bittersweet aftertaste at the back of the tongue. I left the leaf longer than I usually do as I wanted to taste the whole potential of the tea, it reacted nicely. When steeped longer, the amount of bitterness develops and brings with a tone of bitter almond.

Very nice, dry stored (maybe too dry) tea of sufficient complexity. More notes at: http://jakubtomek.blogspot.com/2012/03/1998-cnnp-you-le.html
