The second Yiwu I’ve had. They’re easy; I don’t find anything particularly enamoring about them, but I get why some folks might. Bread dough up front, sweet and yeasty. I did feel this gave me some good confirmation of what “Yiwu” implies, and that Taiwan storage is indeed quite neutral — this is very similar to the cheapish 2007 Yiwu cake LP dropped. Some camphor in this slightly older sample, which I don’t think I found in the cake. Makes me want to get that thing crocked and bubbling.

A very innocuous session. Wood and astringency come in at the same time during middle steeps, then it gets a bit fruity later on.

Flavors: Astringent, Bread Dough, Camphor, Fruity, Wood
