From Yunnan Sourcing

This ripe cake is pressed a from a wet pile batch done entirely from Ban Pen Village area (Bu Lang Mountains of Menghai County) tea leaves harvested in 2020 and wet piled in late 2020!

Ban Pen Village ripe tea has a very potent cha qi, with a thick tea soup, dark chocolate like bitterness and fruity sweetness. Pure Ban Pen ripe tea is relatively rare. It has a unique bitter-sweet character with a fast hui gan and long lasting sweetness. Cha Qi is strong for a ripe tea!

I really like this shou, but I wish it would last a bit longer. It has mild but very noticeable bitterness. The qi is mild and pleasant, somewhat of a dreamy kind.

Wet leaf aroma reminds me of sesame seeds, caramel, and soy sauce. The taste is bitter, spicy, and savoury at first, with a pronounced vanilla flavour and a biting, almost acidic aftertaste with a hint of banana. It is strong and induces a throat clenching sensation.

Even when brewed strong, the bitterness is not at all overpowering. There are instead enhanced bass and earthy notes combined with a nice woody sweetness.

The mouthfeel has a strong and lasting, almost aggressive, presence in the mouth. The tea is not particularly thick, but I find it quite coating in the mouth.
