Puehr brick tea frome Tibet

I bought 500g of puehr brick tea frome Tibet on swedish ebay. the seller told me that he bought it 1997 in Lhasa and he has stored it well since then.It smells kind of sour.
A label followed the package but it is in tibet. theres no print on the brick. I payed 17 USD/10 GBP/13Euro. Is it a bargain?

If it tastes good that’s definitely a steal! Is it sheng or shu?

I have tried to upload a picture of the brick but nothing work. What the heck, i try again later on. Latest news is that I haved tasted the tea and it tastes like puehr. Just some small parts of leafs fell off the brick so I tried to brew. To make things in the propper way I have to have a puehr knife.

Well, since Sweden has the Worlds second biggest coffee consumption per capita the Swedish eBay normally doesn’t provide great teas. Its up to you to explore.
Most of the sellers doesn’t show that they ship abroad but if you ask nicely I think they will.
