2007 Menghai 7542 vs Menghai 8582
The flavour of the 8582 outlasted the 7542 noticeably but even though the 7542 lost it's legs it stick hung onto its huigan. I was really surprised to see just how oxidised and orange the '85 was, seriously processed which is a great shame.
Neither tea was particularly outstanding though in any department so I think I'll put them at the bottom of the pile to age. I have much higher hopes for the 7542 though in the years to come.
