I finished this not too long ago.
I like how it was astringent.
Had a very sharp finish to it too.

It got stale really really fast though.

Anyone else like this tea?

This is one of my favorite teas. But mine is not astringent or sharp in the finish at all. I find it very sweet and floral, with a light sugarcane syrup aftertaste.

I did a bit of googling for this tea. It appears it is not a white tea. Some people say it is a white tea, other say it is a green tea, yet other say it is a red tea. Actually, it is in a class of its own. Best description is probably "unfermented pu er".

I understand how confusing it can be sometimes to know where to post. I'm not at all an expert on puerh but I believe for the purposes of learning about sources of this kind of tea the issues of aging would trump the type of tea used for the cake.

i've some aged for about 6 almost 7 years probably already..

still interestingly drinkable. never astringent from the beginning, lost its grassyness but seems to be developing a grape-y fragrance.

however its still no guarantee that all YGB will age well since different factories and makers have different strategies in manufacturing the tea
