Topic: Puerh Controversies
This post is stemming out of a discussion I am having with Eric "Oldmanteapot" right now.
We started with discussing the standards of quality of newer cakes, in terms of aging potential, or even their tastes now. Some dates were thrown around all relating to the puerh bubble, as determining more reliable quality, on average decent quality, and then quite questionably quality after a certain year. What years do you think should be thrown around for separation between these categories?
Then the question arose involving the fact that there are massive amounts of cakes labeled as coming from certain regions. The question is Do you really think the massive amount of cakes labled as Banzhang, or Yiwu, or the other prized regions are really from those regions/mountains?
I'd like to hear everyones opinions on this, as I find its an interesting discussion.
