On the verge of splendor! 2009 & 2011 early Spring Menghai area material. Careful Guangdong dry storage has browned off the leaves and pushed this cake a little but with no GD storage taste apparent. This cake would have been very powerful with harsh bitterness when young. The tea starts off infusion 1 being quite powerful still. infusion 2 and beyond is sweet with slight apricot/stone fruit nature. A nice stone fruit after taste. A soft aging tea with smooth texture. Later infusions the flavour may wain but the sweetness and stone fruit will carry on. This tea can only get deeper and sweeter with time! Guangdong storage 2011-2018. U.K pumador storage 2018 onwards.
