How is the 1993? If possible have you compared it to the one from EOT?
When you say too dry, are we talking Kunming dryness for 12yrs?
I tried the 93 too. I haven't read any of the extra posts yet - so if Jan has verified it as something, then good. I suspect its not from menghai, but it still has some serious kickbutt strength to it. the aged flavor in it was present, and enjoyable.
G-off-re. by too dry yes - it's kunming dry. preferences for tea are fun aren't they?
