Tasted this the day after having the 2006. Only the second or third shou I’ve had, take this with a grain of salt. Compared to the ‘06, this one comes off with a little more cherry/fruit/spice/wood on the nose, and I’m getting more of an old book/paper aroma as I exhale after a sip. A very round/earthy tea, very thick and creamy. It’s nice, but a little boring for my taste.
