From Yunnan Sourcing

Our first raw production release for 2012! First flush of spring material from Man Zhuan village (Yi Wu mountains). Entirely no-spray tea leaves picked from 80 to 100 year old untended bushes and expertly processed by hand. Classic Yi Wu taste with a nice balanced full mouth-feel, thick soupy tea liquor and room filling aroma! Heavier and more pungent in taste than the lighter fruitier “Early Spring” cake with same wrapper.

90 kilograms in total produced.
Pressed with 40 kilogram stone press.
7 cakes per bamboo tong (7 × 250 grams).

Grabbed this one for work today. I don’t think I will again, this tea seems much to delicate and was a waste to drink at work under the wrong circumstances.

At any rate, grabbed too much leaf again and I’m not going to waste any so I was forced to fill half the cup with leaf. Wasn’t so heart-throbbing as I would anticipate with that much leaf. I guess that and the lack of consistent bitterness (apart from the first cup lack of any bitterness) plus the sweet dirt tones are all signs of Yiwu, in my experience anyway.

I drank a whole cake of 2005 “Big Green Tree” over the past few months at work and that being a daily Yiwu drinker I thought I’d go for this one. Would prefer to save this one for the gaiwan or jianshui and get some more Big Green Tree for work… as far as Yiwu is involved.

Keep this one to finer brewing.
