I unwrapped this cake for the first time on 12/25/2021 to try. It has been in my tea cabinet for at least 8 years. It is impressive for such an inexpensive tea, so kudos to Yunnan Sourcing. Taste of molasses, a hint of cherry, and lingering sweetness. I did not detect any bitterness, but a lasting salivary reaction took place. It is an enjoyable ripe pu-erh.
