It sounds like both your 'loose sheng' and the takeout tea are cooked. There's some variation in shu tastes, but the leaves won't lie. If you post a picture, it should be obvious.

Here's a nice primer from Bears:

If they are pleasant I drink them young, if they are unpalatable, I put them in an envelope, mark them, and store them, hoping to forget about them and then in a couple of years, hope to find them and try them once again.

For me, I drink the samples of new puerh simply because I've made the mistake of waiting a long time to drink a sample only to discover an amazing tea that has long been sold out.

On older puerh where only a sample is affordable or able to be obtained, well that I save for a special occasion. Hopefully sharing with a fellow puerh aficionado.
