Has anybody tried this: http://cgi.ebay.com/Supreme-Aged-Wu-Yi- ... 3358b9377d?

What do you think about it?

Thanks!

No, I have not tried it, but I'd love to! I've really been enjoying wuyi lately and love the idea of picking up a cake of it. I've seen the one you posted before and have been curious about it. I've seen one on a vendor site too, but can't recall which one. I'd be curious to hear about aged da hong pao. The cake is beautiful. It be hard to break that one up.

I had one of these a while back. Cheap, very heavy compression, nice hit of wuyi but nothing special.

Hopefully the one you linked to will have a little more to it but thought I'd post this one as it's vaguely similar.

I'd stay away from it at that price, for sure!

I find it amusing that the cake is impressed with the words "da hong pao," rather than the name of the company which is the usual way to do it
