Many thanks to Bhale for this sample.
"1999 Menghai Yiwu mountain (Dark Blue Piao) green big tree"
Dry leaf appearance: Lots of black and brown leaves. A few gold buds thrown in too.
Dry leaf aroma: Cool, minty aroma. There is another aroma that makes the minty aroma seem a little different than what I normally notice in puerh. I think it might be a strong wood aroma.
Wet leaf aroma: no camphor, mostly just a strong woody aroma.
First infusion: Light amber color, very clear. There is some camphor in the aroma. The taste is a bit light. Some wood, earth and camphor mostly.There is a light aftertaste that is felt in the throat.
Second infusion: Very slightly darker. Still has some camphor aroma. Taste is very minty.
Third infusion: Starting to show younger flavors. Still earthy, but there is a hard to decribe flavor I mostly only notice in young sheng. Kind of a cheese/yogurt/mold type flavor.
Fourth infusion: Everything is starting to come together. Earthiness, camphor, wood, and mold.

It was surprisingly good at that young of an age. I imagine a tea like this could only get better as time passes.
