From Yunnan Sourcing

A new recipe for 2013! We used first flush wild and ancient arbor material from 4 different tea mountains in Simao to craft this lovely tea cake. “Feng Chun” basically means “Meeting Spring” which is appropriate because the overall character of this tea is a fresh, lively, floral and smooth!

The tea brews up a highly aromatic experience. Mouth-feel is lively and hui gan is fast and protracted. Cha Qi is quite obvious but manages not over-power the drink (like Bu Lang teas). Plenty of future aging potential in this potent blend of premium pu-erh teas!

400 grams per cake (7 cakes per bamboo tong)

I got a free sample of this blended sheng recently. It tastes a bit like huang pian, even though it isn’t, since it is quite sour overall.

There are aromas of caramel, marsh, cake, hay, compost and rapini. The liquor has a light to medium body. Even at 9 years of age it still tastes quite green and young. However, it is more of a warming profile than what you tend to get with fresh sheng.

Overarching flavours are sweet and sour. Specifically, I can taste warm, sour grass and cabbage in the first steep. These are followed by flavours of hay, roasted lemons and mineral, nutty ones. The aftertaste has a floral sourness a bit like a Taiwanese high mountain oolong. It has good legs and a herbaceous character with notes of saline, honey and spinach.

Another blend from YS. I liked this one quite a lot. It’s quite easy to drink young, but still feels like it has the potential to age. Kind of that cereal sweetness, with some astringency but not too much. It’s thick, with a medium high kick factor, and has got a little huigan. Going to pick up a cake of this for sure.

Got one of these aging away. I bought it from the description. I will have to break it out soon.
