It really depends.
Low quality old Wu Yi stays low quality regardless of age (i bought several such, falling for promo tricks).
Top quality old Wu Yi is a dream, and more or less unobtainable as it is very very rare.
Walking in Chinatown the other day with fellow poster TokyoB, I saw a can of Sea Dyke Shui Xian on the street. About $8 for 125g. Normally, I would never touch stuff like this but after reading many posts on Teachat about it, I said, 'what the heck'. When I returned home, I immediately brewed it up. That can will sit there never to be touched again. Maybe I can use the canister for another tea but anyone able to come to my place can have that tea!
