Yuan Man is translated as “perfect” into English language. This cake from Yiwu leaves certainly embodies this translation in terms of value. Made from 2008 spring tea leaves of small trees, it has such good taste that it’s often mistaken as a big tree tea cake.
The Yuan Man cake itself has shiny tea leaves. It has bold fragrance of sweetness and it is transitioning to the savoury plum fragrance of old Yiwu teas. The orangey body of this tea is thick with very good viscosity contributed by tea oil. There will be much sweet aftertaste behind your cheeks. It leaves the tongue slightly dry therefore encouraging salivation.
A very satisfying tea!
