I've read the material provided several times and tried to answer this quiz multiple times and I'm either confused about something (which is entirely possible) or there's a problem with this quiz. Let me know if I'm just wrong, however I've tried every reasonable combination that I can see and I can't get the quiz to register as correct.
The taste profile described in the article, for the most part, only applies to ripe Pu-erh. The tast profile in Pu-erh changes as the tea ages. Very young Pu-erh is often grassy, floral or fruity while proper stored aged Pu-erh offers flavors of camphor, dried jujube, longan fruit, plum and ginseng. The most sought-after elements in Pu-erh are its bittersweet aftertaste (hui gan) and sweet aftertaste (hui tien).
