Right, I see. I'm trying to decide what to keep my samples in that would allow a real aging climate like we have here in BKK. With bings it's easy. But I think the samples need to be taken out of their zip-locked bags, put into some other container that will allow a real continuation of the aging process. Any ideas? Large mesh bags? Hemp? wrapped up cheese cloth?apache wrote:No, I'm not saying to buy the cake and see what happen in a few years time. I thougth you already got the cake and not sure about it. Just keep the remaining sample and try again in a few years time. But if you enjoy it and are not planning to age it and the price is good, I see no reason why not have one and drink it like green tea.Tead Off wrote:Sounds like the cake is already bought to me.

I don't think he's saying to buy the cake if there is any questions about it.
One of the intentionally aged teas, Pu-Erh has a loyal following.
I think as long as it wasn't stored air tight, should be ok. I would put it in a paper bag then store the bag in a metal box or ceramic jar with other pu samples. But don't put sheng and shu samples together in the same container!
