Ok that makes a lot of sense considering I've had multiple 7542's that were claimed to span from 1996-2002 and all in between (all with Zhongcha wrappers) so I'm sure it's something we can't pinpoint. B, do you agree with the decline in quality of either of these recipes concurrent with the "approximate" dates of the liberalization based on your experience?
