He has what he claims to be a 1999 Menghai 7542 going for much lower than it should be. I asked why, and he said it is because the local economy can't support expensive tea like Kuala Lumpur, so even though it is old they haven't raised the price much. He says it has been stored in Malaysia the whole time.
Normally it seems people don't post prices, but I will. I have seen this tea in Korea for $300-$700 in different stores, and in Kuala Lumpur for about 2,000 MYR ($630ish), but here it is selling for 180 MYR, which is roughly $55. Scam? Mistake? Deal of the year? Bad storage leading to lower price?
The right phrase should be:
Local Economy can't support 'fake' expensive tea like Kuala Lumpur
If it is real 1999 Menghai 7542 @ RM180... It will be sold out instantly without you having chance
Generally, if the deal is too good to be true... then you have to be careful. Not to mention you are a foreigner here, have to be even more careful.
