Thanks for the replies. Tomorrow when the sun is back I'll take some photos of the front of each cake and the brick.
The edges of the small cake are crumbly and it looks like sheng material. I haven't opened the brick yet, so I don't know much more about it.
Regarding the Rui Pin Hao -
Roughly $5 US . . . or $100 US for a basket
Lets just say I could have bought many more for the price I payed
. Hey it was the first pu purchase of the day, I didn't know if I'd find more (lame but true).
luckily this was the only pricey one I bought, from a guy who sold only these cakes (and pu bags - yuck!) in his herb shop. That sob.
Do you have the box for the first tuo (third picture down)?
no, sorry, these were sold in a large glass jar individually - I bought only that one for $8 (its one of the larger tuocha variety).
I payed roughly: $10.80 each for the 7 sons cakes
$16 each for the small cakes
$8 each for the brick and the Xiaguan tuocha
$6 for the Menghai tuocha
how do they taste ?
Believe it or not I haven't had time to taste them, plus I wanted to get photos before I started ripping chunks out. I've acquired so much pu over the past year I doubt I'll ever try it all, but I'll certainly make time for these seeing how they are my first personal acquisition. Reviews will be posted within the coming weeks.
the small cake looks like one of a series of jingmai productions. . .
Bears3X, do you have any more information on these? Possibly a link? ty
You should have stopped in at Tea Gallery on Allen if it was open.
I don't know where that is, I was just walking into Chinatown's cultural depths, searching the little shops and frequently losing my direction without a map. I ended up having to take a cab back to GCS because no one I asked could come to agreement as to which direction that was in. Lesson number 2: Maps are your friend.
