The aftertaste came with a nice refreshing citrus trace. The fourth infusion was surprisingly creamy, I was not expecting this tone to appear and it was really a nice surprise. After the 6th or 7th infusion I could feel a slight trace of astringency and dryness, perhaps due to the little aging of the cake. Nevertheless, it was all in the norm and did not affect the regular taste much.
It is in general a very friendly cake and I would recommend it especially to those who would like to try some of the young ancient tree cakes and do not know which one to go first. I must say it is one of the best Yiwu cake samples I have tried so far, together with 2009 YiWu LuoShuiDong that I haven't reviewed here. Both of them I can highly recommend.
I must however admit I seem to run out of words when describing typical taste of Yiwu area. I have tasted so far ancient tree samples from 2009 and 2010 and they are simply good, stable and predictable, rather sweeter in taste. The very good ones tend to be quite similar in aroma, flavour, and smell as well. They only differ in tiny traces of gentle undertones that happen to appear in the infusions from time to time but that is one of the reasons I like tasting them.
Good tea, good life.
