Description:

Probably a small tea factory in Yi Wu area pressed this cake under the "zhong cha" label in 2003. Entirely spring 2013 Yi Wu mountain material. Stored in Jing Hong until 2012 when it was purchased by Yunnan Sourcing and brought to Kunming. Nice balanced traditional (wetter) storage. Nicely aged but without any moldy or off smells. Camphor and delicate aromas when brewed. Sweet thick tea soup. An enjoyable tropical stored tea!

2003 CNNP Yi Wu Old Tree Round Cake

5 stars 4.0 This review helped: 0 / 0

According to the seller it is a wet stored tea and really, when you open the bag with the sample you can smell strong earthiness fading away. Leaves smell intensely sweetly and earthy after rinsing. The brew is dark brown (like wild honey), pleasant sweet taste, you can feel slight maturity (camphor), earthiness is surprisingly very lightly in the background. Infusions are quite full, the tastiest were 3rd and 4th one, but even then the taste is very good and full bodied. You can feel a cooling effect in the mouth, generally the tea had an easing effect on me. It is an interesting tea that is certainly worth at least trying.

yixung 100 ml, 10s rinse - 15/10/20/30/35/40/50/60/90
