Sorry for the delayed response.
Our paramters (kilos and temp/humidity) are nearly identical. It will be quite interesting to compare and see how things turn out. I am going on year four of about 75-80 bings. The smell of the pumidor continues to be glorious!


how do they taste?

So far some have been fabulous. Some Pu's selected that seemed to be "good" were very drinkable and are now a bit flat and boring. Some of the early 2000's is quite good. The '93 7542 has mellowed even more.

Honestly I have been waiting longer to start digging in there. This summer will be a good time to start!


I think six years is probably a good place to start evaluating, and teas that are now getting bland and boring might need to be consumed.

What's the difference between flat and mellow?

Mellow is when you hope (in vain) your tea will somehow magically recover its strength, flat is when you acknowledge that it won't

Thank you for sharing your observations. Time to start assesing teas. Nibble marks to begin.
