However, the same year Dayi Yiwu does have the similar vertical red line!
Here I find a page might be helpful or cause more confusion:
Just find out that, that is an auction website, and this link is only good for a few days!.

Decided to take some pictures of the wrapper and my cake... Later today I'll try it side by side with the sample I received earlier. The sample (50g) was shipped by DHT on April 1, the cake was shipped on April 23. (One of the reasons I liked DHT is that for some reason their packages reaches me very fast (two weeks from China to Norway, as opposed to the usual 5-6) and it's free of charge...) So there's a good chance that they're the same thing, and since I don't have a sample of the same tea from another vendor my comparison won't be able to tell whether or not what I have is the real thing... In any case, I'm hoping the cake and the sample are the same thing, fake or not, since I did like the sample a lot
Anyway, here's the pictures:
Closer look at the upper right:

The color could be the monitor or the camera, what was the observed color of the neifei?
