From Yunnan Sourcing

A classic recipe from Menghai. This is an average blend of 5th grade material that was fermented last year, so the cake does not have that just fermented taste, rather it has already mellowed a bit. Another 6 months to a year down the road and it will make even more impovements in taste and liquor clarity. When brewed this cake will taste a little sweet and lighter than the creamy 7262.

9g / 190ml large gaiwan
Rinse smelled a bit fishy, so it probably could age for a while longer.

First infusion:
Fishy smell is gone. Lovely sweet aroma, smooth comforting taste. Don’t know how to describe this, but it’s almost like the best possible hot water, neutral taste but full-bodied and goes with everything. I’m eating it with fruit for breakfast and it pairs fine, doesn’t overwhelm the mild dragonfruit. Tastes good with milk too.

Second infusion:
Hmm, this infusion is not so sweet and I’m getting a bit more of that “plain water” taste, maybe due to very light mellow flavour and a slight astringency on the tongue (like when you drink too much warm water). Better than the first time I tried this (used too much leaf), but I probably won’t buy the full cake.

Increasing rating to 82.
