When it comes to brewing, we offer up this Iron Cake challenge. Not to be overly dramatic. It's just that initial tight compression and subsequent fermentation mean that this tea remains slightly immature at the center while displaying notable chenxiang - aged aroma, throughout the surface and mid-layers. A little foreknowledge and finesse and this mild paradox is easily resolved.
Remarkably potent tea with nice viscosity and complex aromatics. This is a tea entering into the realm of well-aged shengcha with considerable stamina and primed for optimal future development.
