Thanks for your reply.

Exactly, you get the point. I think it is normal for you to have such a concern because in the internet
world, it is not easy to verify people's identification and the validity of their contents.
That's true. I totally agree with you.
Besides, I like this kind of attitude of yours. Why? Because when you are told by someone, you do not 100%
believe, but still open yourself to verify the infomation steps by steps or to wait for more information
to confirm the validity of the information. This is a very good attitude to figure out Puerh Tea, in
Chinese we have this statment (translation) "Make a imaginative assumption, then prove it carefully."
I am sorry that I do not know what happen previously, therefore, I did not following this statement: "this
is once again j-free/jeffrey or aaron fisher."
Anyway, I am new to here. What I said is just what I have said. I think people here would better to
believe the evidence I provided in the future rather than just my words. Time will prove.
Back to Puerh Tea, you are right that the information in the Puerh Tea world is not as 100% as you think.
What I mean is that what people told you may not be the correct information about the Puerh Tea,
especially when involving aging year. However, this is the problem not only encountered by the Western's
Puerh World. Even in our Chinese Tea community, it always happens that even some Vendors (I do not mean
those have reputation) did not know exactly the products.
I have taken some photos for you. I chose to take a close up to a box of square tea bricks produced in
1999 and by Xia Guan Tea Factory.
Here we go,
The photos show some of my collection on my bookshelf (Puerh Tea conquers the top two rows).
I collect Puerh Tea just like people collecting wine.
When I took the photos I found one of my good collection, 1999 Xia Guan square tea bricks.
I chose this one to show you this time.
