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.

A delicious and smooth ripe, one of the best dayi ripes I’ve tasted. Like a typical deep earthy dayi product, only better.

One of the reasons I buy one from each year of these.

Indeed. I am indebted to the person who sent me a sample who shall remain unnamed. How do the other years stack up? I’d like to get a cake but that 2009 is fetching $100 from dragon tea house.

I would buy a new one and age it a few years. They may be a bit cheaper on Aliexpress. I haven’t checked pricing on there much lately.
