This classic cake from Tian Di Ren is ready for drinking, with a dark "fruit" flavor profile paired with notes of malted grains and satisfying spiced undertones that grow musty and sweet as the brew steeps out over a long session. Over ten years of age have brought complexity to this flavorful cake, making this great for both daily drinking and longer sessions. The decade of careful storage in relatively dry northern China has brought out a definite "aged" flavor in this cake, with a clean mustiness that does not become muddy or heavy and thick.
