Yes, I agree. It is the same with fermented tea that I buy from China. If you open a cake immediately after it arrives, the taste is very muted. Leave it for a month and it is a completely different tea. I only just aligned those two last week. The great thing is that I have a lot of tea and tobacco that I don’t have to feel impatient while they settle in.I have found that tins/cans really need a couple weeks to 'open up' - it sounds like such nebulous, cork-sniffing bullshit, in a way, but I have found this to be true with C&D tins, especially ...I don't know if it's a humidity thing, magic, or other process ...but there's something to it.
