2017 Yi Wu 100g CakeEvery Day Teas
For a starter cake, this tea is exceptional. It was a true joy to experience this tea unfold, drinking through each cup. Good body and structure to start, with floral and vegetal notes, followed by tobacco, spice and stone fruit. This tea can have some intense bitterness and astringency, if pushed., which translates well into a pleasant huigan.
