Most of you probably know this already -
sometimes when shopping for various big-company puerhs you can find some of the cakes for slightly cheaper per cake, maybe 50 cents, maybe even up to a dollar savings. Now, i've also found out that it does not at all translate to savings when thinking of purchasing in bulk, as it winds up being one of the most expensive of all of the big Ebay tea sellers.
For a single cake for fun, I'd consider it though. I've order products from them in the past, and they weren't bad, though I think his teapots, even his ceramic ones, are way overpriced for what one gets. I was gifted the 100ml shanshui ceramic pot, in a more or less standard 'shui ping' look. while it was pretty solid, the spout is tiny, and the air hole on the lid is very small, so if you want a quicker pour you had to take the lid off and risk spilling the tea over the top of the lid. lol. i still use it for itty bits of chinese green.
