From PuerhShop.com

The 6th of its 2009 series, this cake is made by blending one Spring tea from Yiwu, and another Fall tea from Bulang, pure and simple – it was my idea to blend these two together.

The Spring tea from Yiwu is aromatic, yet bitter and rough, it turns into a smooth affair when blending with a Fall tea from Bulang. And this Bulang is no ordinary Bulang, it is considered as the best of Bulang.

I’m nearly halfway through this cake now, so I think it’s probably time to get around to writing something about it. It’s pretty good for the price, smooth and easy with just a light honey flavor, and decent but not crazy caffeine/energy. Good looking whole leaves and medium compression. Supposedly a Yiwu+Bulang blend but i don’t really taste any characteristic Yiwu flavors or scents, It’s mostly just a light balanced honey-ish profile. Although in late brews it does tend to go bitter (instead of gently fading off into sweetness like better sheng) betraying its cheap plantation origins, but you can hardly blame it too much at this price, what other remotely drinkable 5 year old shengs go for $15/cake still? Overall, ok tea on the cheap, won’t get it again, but I don’t regret the one cake of it.
