Interesting this conversation has just popped up, but this tea has been on my mind for a couple years because of it's curious nature. I would like to add to nicks observations and try to prevent any further chastising of nick (ImmortaliTEA). People are calling him "a confused dude" on this blog...
So who here has actually tried this, and who here still thinks that this is purely dry stored?
To me this one has the appearance (minus the thin white mold on surface), texture, and characteristics of a dry stored. However, there is a distinct taste (and smell on cake surface) of mold in there. It is not really off putting to me, but it is obvious. For a couple of friends who are more sensitive to mold and wet stored, when I brewed it for them it was immediately obvious to them too.
I had 3 different 10g samples. Last time I drank this was about 5-6 months ago. I still have 4 grams or so. Something draws me away from wanting to finish this off.
So in my limited newbish opinion it is dry, but moldy...how? I have no idea...
Differing opinions people? There must be because people praise this thing a lot on other blogs. Gingko when was the last time you tried this?
