It's in Chinese, you can use Google translate ...
Here we go:

2011 Huanghe Qingshan Ripe
Rating: 4/5

2011 Weie Zhongshan Raw
Rating: 4.5/5


Wonder would Scott stock them?

Here is the price I find in one online shop: 2900 RMB (152 RMB /100 g):

That is Dayi Xinhai Centennial tea. Comes in 4 pieces. Each 1911g. 2 Raw 2 Ripe. When the boxes combined, it will form a nice display set. Limited collection. Our official Dayi reseller here is bringing in a few sets. Have to buy in 4 pieces. Kind of expensive.

Clouds wrote the review in 6 parts (he has only updated 4/6). Compilation thread (google translated)

Besides the 1911g set, there is a 357g version. Raw and Ripe. Can be purchased separately. Raw is much expensive than the Ripe version. Price is out for preorder.

..., but there's reason why it's 1911g.

357 isn't the same ...

The Google translated link is iffy in it's description of the tea, and I don't know much about the age and type of tea leaves used in each of these 4 cakes. The Taetea sales ladies can't tell me much (the owners were away).
I'll get some more info from them later this week. No tasting as well. Ought to get the trial pack too.

The 357gms will be in the stores in the next 2-3 days here in Beijing.

Is the shop from Dayi official shop? If yes, mind sharing what is the price tag for 357g there?

Local teashop confirmed bringing this 4 piece (1911kg x 4) set in. Very limited, and if want have to reserve quick. I don't think I will buy for my own. Too expensive.

But I wonder will there be enough interested for people to share this mega reviewed collection? I could buy and break this and share them, can be costly though :(

LOVE THE COMMERCIAL. I guess this is the kind of epic pu-erh commercials they have in China. :shock:

How much does one of these cost? On Average...

Thank you Cloud, and appreciate your time and effort for the English write up that may hopefully be an excellent drinking tea in the future.
