But a good first stage aged Mengsong has both high and low notes. Why compromise?
Methinks your Mengsong has been stored dry and cold.
I can't tell if you are making fun of Mengsong or not - I'm a fan though. Mengsong's low notes never dive deep like Laoman'e. I think the complexity also swings in LME's favor, but that depends on the material.
It is not that one is better than the other, the open market has deemed LBZ one of the most expensive teas (for now), but I am sure there are plenty of people who would prefer a younger mengsong to a younger LBZ or LME, but they are different teas.
For me, it depends on mood. I drink both pretty regularly.
And for Marshaln's point, I think the high notes definitely fade for all of the aforementioned teas. I had a 2012 spring Laoman'e on the weekend that had a lot of floral this and that, it'll be gone in a year or two though, if stored well.
