Excellent review.

Wow, if a puerh only lasted 5 infusions for me I'd seriously consider throwing it out or at least sending it to somebody who didn't care.

Really interested in hearing what airing it out does.

Thanks for sharing. I am sorry that the incense flavors were distracting. I don't really think that the sample is "light wet stored". The 'white frost' is generally indicative of a more aggressive fermentation.
