Not so much. I think taste is subjective from one person to another. Also you should not believe everything a vendor writes about there teas. They are trying to sell you a product. I ordered a sample. I was just queries to see if anyone else has tired it and if so what are there thoughts.
Well im not an Pu erh expert,But my reasoning is this:
Professional shops with high quality tea must
cater to expert or sophisticated tea drinkers.
Won´t a more experienced tea drinker, won´t he need some information besides the name to make a decision about buying a tea?
so i wonder who his targeted clientele is.
would you buy a oolong just because its called paochung or tie guan yin??
how much does that tell about the tea??
Anyway im just sceptic, i never bought from the vendor.
He might be really good, i just wanted to give you my reason for my doubts.
but of course you are right with your points.
Wrong information is also not better and some tastes are very subjective.
