I wish I could have also tasted this tea when it was young to be able to understand how aging during the last 7 years has affected it. Like the other aged ripe puerh teas that I have gotten to sample it is not that impressive to me. While it lacks any off tastes of being overly musty, earthy or malty, it does not have that much else going for it. Overall the taste comes off to me as bland and washed out without much to be desired. Yet another example to support my view that beyond a year or so to let a new ripe puerh air out from any lingering off smells and tastes after postfermentation it does not make sense to age already artificially aged ripe puerh.
