The cake is 2003 7542 Red Dayi batch 310 as claimed?
Got this picture from the Taiwan version of the yearbook.
The site that you took the pictures from (your first post) clearly labeled it as a 2004 red ribbon 7542, which is not the same as this 2003 version in the yearbook. So which one is it?
Either way, packaging is a terrible way of IDing a tea. If it tastes like crap it doesn't really matter if it's really is Dayi, does it?
