I was very excited to find this aged bai mudan cake for such a low price. Opening the wraper, the tea is crumbly and dusty and smells of a damp basement.

Brews a medium orange. Taste is medicinal and musty with a very thin mouthfeel. None of the thickness and sweet dried fruit flavors that I’ve gotten in other aged white teas. To be honest it’s not very enjoyable and a total letdown.

I will store away the cake and hope that the musty character fades over the coming months. I hope it does, since otherwise there’s no way I could finish this whole cake.

Sorry to hear. I suspect it will change for the better if given proper storage. I have loose leaf shou mei from 2015 that’s gotten thicker and more honey-ed over time. I store it in a paper bag with all my midaged sheng.

I’ve found white cakes get better after storing them for ~6 months. It gets rid of the wet storage, musty, and medicinal/mineral flavours. I’ve only tried it in a few cakes, but so far I haven’t had any that can’t be saved.

Thanks, I’ll definitely hold on to it and see if it improves over time.
