I drank another sample today from Davelcorp — the 99 Yellow Label from Hou De. It is surprisingly good. I thought I was going to get some young, greenish tasting thing and expected an above average young cake, but instead I was greeted with an aged tasting tea. I suppose 7 years is the end of the first fermentation period, and thus makes it drinkable. But the liquor and the aroma are closer to those of an aged puerh than that of a young puerh. It’s not clear why that is the case though. I wonder if it’s been through wet storage? I’m really bad at telling wet storage treatment. Sometimes I get a faint hint of it, but I really don’t know for sure.
