2009 Yunnan Sourcing "Bu Lang Shan Yun"

From Yunnan Sourcing  $46 for a 357 g cake.

 This is solid stuff. The leaves are relatively dark in color for a three year old cake. I started out with a quick wash, then 10 s infusions. This is one of the few younger raw cakes that is not pungent and overpowering, especially light on the tannins the way I was brewing it. It is a great mid price range introduction to raw cakes since it is fairly simple and straight forward, not in a bad way either. This would be worth a cake or two to have a few times a year and watch age.
