So what stores would you recommend as well as what brands? I'm really only familar with the late 90s and on forms of shu pu, such as Menghai, Dayi, Xiaguan, but I'm also interested in some Sheng. Are there are any stores you could direct me to that would sell cheap pu-er (or any other tea)?

If your just looking for cheap shu than i wouldn't worry too much about looking for a good store since stuff like that is sold at almost every tea shop in HK. Since your not able to taste anything before you buy than i'd suggest sticking with tea you already know. I was there last month and went into a bunch of shops. They're pretty much all the same if cheap is what you want but steer clear of the ones that don't sell big factory cakes or seem like Ten Ren. If you want better or older tea than i'd suggest checking out the link posted above and going to those shops instead.
