I had that yesterday. My colleagues once said it looks like soya sauce and tastes like it as well.

Agreed! Ebay can be a crap shoot on tea a lot of times.

I really like this cup - the way it feels slick when it hits the lips (both the glaze and the shape of the lip) and the size is just right for my hand. Cup was made by Petr Novák. I have been using his cups a lot lately and really enjoying them

Enjoying the last of a sample of 2009 YS Yae Le Zhi Chun sheng, a nice tea which gave a few nice infusions 2 days ago and has been generous again all day today, still flavorful. It's a patient and pleasing tea.

2006 Ming-Yuan Hao
Yi Wu 858 Puerh Museum

Aging nicely. Showing a mellower side with raisny/date-like dried fruit essence and a nice enveloping finish. Only a sample. Pic is of first brew.

Still enjoying infusions of the 2009 YS Yae Le Zhi Chun sheng this afternoon--it's running out of steam, but has been very pleasant to have sitting on the side of the office tea tray, occasionally sipping some, setting up long infusions to enjoy between oolong or white tea sessions. This kind of durability is typical of many of my puerh sessions, and is why my few kilos is a many-years supply....

Early 90's 7542, well that is according to the German vendor i purchased it from. All i know for sure is that this has spent some time in a humid HK warehouse. It still has hints of storage present so it could probably use a bit more time to dry out. Looking at the brewed leaves i'd say this was kept rather well. All the leaves are a nice light brown with a hints of green and no signs of damage from moisture. A nice everyday tea.
