Health effects of young pu-erh

Should young shengs should be drunk regularly? I've read on LJ of older drinkers(ahem) not taking kindly -stomach wise- to too much young sheng. Vendors keep pushing new cakes as "excellent to drink now".

Raw pu-erh is reputed to have a cooling effect. However I've had young shengs with so much qi that my hands and head would heat up after a few cups.

I can't imagine the cigarette tasting smoky brews could be too good for you...
