From Yishanmo garden in Mansa/Yiwu, a deeply interesting cake, with complexity to be discovered over a few (or many) sessions.

You also get all the standard high quality Yiwu characteristics: sweet, smooth, good aftertaste.

There’s only a few cakes, we won’t be able to re-stock at this price or at all.

    Very clean floral nose, wet leaves show very clean, floral aromas in the pot. Practically pot pourri. Semi-mature shining amber coloured soup. Brews easily. Classic, persistent aromas out of the bowl with a touch of camphor and moss resolving to peachy/ pandan sweetness and a vein of freshness that adds a mouthwatering kick. As the session progresses an underlying firmness from the polyphenols builds up, offset with a nice thickness to the soup. I imagine there’s room for this to develop further over the next few years, and accordingly I’m going to tuck it away for some time.

    Lovely semi-mature tea, seemingly from natural storage, that feels like there’ll be a few more layers to reveal in time, and that’s already aromatically very expressive. Good value.
