‘Yuan Yuan Tang’ is a well established Taiwanese label. This cake has been resting since it’s inception in Taiwan till 2022. Taiwan benefits from semi humid conditions which creates a nice all round environment for resting cakes. YYT presents this as 100% San He She area of Yiwu.
Light, woody camphor off the warm leaf in the gaiwan. Deep and sweet sweet cherry / apricot off the rinse. Clean, copper bronze liquor. The fruity sweet nature of this tea comes in straight at the first infusion with a cherry flavour like aftertaste. Seems like only a Shou or Hong cha would pull off these flavours. Soft and smooth structure, no real mouth pucker. This cake above all shows off what old Yiwu does very well, sweetness! Chi is quite background but calming.
