Hello brothers and sisters,
The question is: Should I throw this?

Looks drinkable to me. Mold, as I see it, is part of the aging process. keep them in a dry environment and mold will not grow if you are concerned.

Looks not drinkable to me. Mold, as I see it, is NOT and NEVER part of the aging process. keep them in a dry environment(AND AWAY FROM OTHER ODOURS) and mold will not grow if you are concerned.

ALSO AS I SEE IT, THE TEA IS BECOMING A BIT MUDDY OR GUMMY LIKE, AND THE COMPOSITION OF THE TEA IS NOT ORIGINALLY GOOD, THIS MAKE THE KEEPING OF CAKE TEA MORE DIFFICULT.

GOOD TEA BASE+GOOD ENVIRONMENT+TIME=GOOD AGED PUERH TEA
