Now, one more thing, Hoppy. You should open a Flickr account and post these photos in the Flickr Puer Tea Group.
Your work load never ends around here!
Cool stash! Thanks for Sharing.. The only one I actually own is the 6ftm. I do have the MengHai 7542 recipe that you listed but different years. Does your pu stay at 50-60 RH all year? If so, you might want to up it a bit more or you wont be drinking tea for a while. GOD DONT YOU JUST LOVE PUERH!TomVerlain wrote:hi all
I took a look at some of my stash today to see how they were doing. The humidity where they live is normally 50-60%, so not too wet. They did smell wonderful as I took them out, so they are "cooking" at their own pace.
I think there is a lot of change in the first few months, the Bu Lang was pretty moist and very green looking on arrival, and quickly dried a bit and darkend.
The v93 is interesting, as most of what I find on the web is about the shu version, and this is the raw version.
They are not yet the rusty color of twenty year old sheng, but it seems the only way tea will get to be twenty years old is to wait

Oh, now I remember that whole episode. You negotiated a discount sale from him for several cakes. vins_n_tea on ebay. Looks like he is back to having nothing for sale anymore. I suspect he sells mostly via some other route and was just testing out ebay USA.PolyhymnianMuse wrote: All of these cakes are from YunNan YuanNian Tea
