To you collectors out there,
Recently, there has been a lot of buzz regarding the 2006 Menghai Dayi 0622 and 7432. Futures suggest these are the beengs to look out for as they are speculated to rise significantly in value as a consequence of grade, and for the novelty of 0622 recipie having its first introduction in to the market. (Apparently the the 2006 batch #601 is supposed to be the best as they are all unblended spring mao cha of superior grade.) I have researched the prices for each of type beeng, and they have risen signficantly, as much as $3 USD in the last 2 weeks. I am assuming their predictions could be correct. Currently, prices range from $16 USD to $39 USD for a 400g beeng. I had observed that each time vendors had advertised them, they sell out in a matter of days. And each time they relist, the quantity numbers seem to dwindle. Just today, I haved noticed that a vendor has " uped"their price for the 7432. I couldn't take the risk of not getting mine in the event that speculators are correct, so I just purchased a number of each. I don't collect for resale value, just thought I would fork it out now instead of potentially having to pay 200 for each 10 years from now.
Unfortunatly, I have to wait impatiently for them to to be shipped so I haven't personally inspected them . For those of you who already have them in your hands, what are your initial impressions? Comments? Is it all Hype. Unfortunatly, my sources do not sell samples! Also, are there any "must have" selctions you care to share?
