Just got my order from YS US after some USPS shenanigans. This cake came with a slightly crushed edge and the loose leaf that fell off was in the wrapper. It amounted to 4.5gm so I put it in a small yixing gaiwan and used the broken cake as an opportunity to taste it right away. I have a lot of shu in my collection of varying ages from 2007 – 2015. This one is definitely different. Thick, sweet, date-like flavor with a very long finish and lots of interesting texture. It’s soft and round, no particular flavor sticking out but an amalgamation of sophisticated aromas and sensory experience. I’m kind of glad I had an excuse to break into this cake as it’s the most expensive ripe I’ve ever shelled out for and I might have waited for a special occasion to try it.
