I ordered one of these "Premium Alliance" Yunnian Tea Co cakes from the referenced ebayer. He has nothing at all available now, I noticed. It arrived a few days ago, quite speedy delivery and the most impressive packaging I have seen for pu. I was the only bidder and got it for $5.99 plus $10.00 shipping. I am drinking some now and am not especially impressed, but don't regret my purchase either.
The leaves are beautiful and the compression is slight. It comes apart very easily so I suppose a stone mold instead of iron.
It is OK, different from most of my other sheng, in some ways stronger tasting in others sort of lacking. My first sniff reminded me of banana, and I think that is not a bad comparison throughout. It is a bit sweet, but somehow the flavor profile just seems a little off balance, like it has some nice high notes, but is missing material in the middle and lower registers. Sometimes there is a little aftertaste, sometimes not. Occasionally I notice an oily feel on my lips that I like, then it goes away. Astringency is not a problem. A couple times it made me feel heated, qi (?) maybe.
All in all, I am happy to have this, will be curious to see how it ages, if maybe those low notes fill in over time, but I am not floored by it. Let's call it three stars out of five: I like it.
