It has been two years since I had this last. In that time, I’ve had it in dry storage. I read my previous tasting notes, and it is still much the same. If you brew it quickly, it will yield some nice mellow fermented flavors and sweetness. If you push it 15-20 seconds, it will begin to show its raw pu’er taste and bitterness. This cake is 500gr and as such it is pretty dang inexpensive for a 12 year old cake. It’ll be interesting to try this one again in a few more years when it has lost nearly all of its greenness. I saw John’s review of this and visited his website, and in response to his statement about cloves, I have never detected any clove in this. Maybe my senses just aren’t refined enough. This is a bargain cake. For that reason, I recommend it.
