M's recommended cake:

is good stuff. I like it already and I bought a bunch of samples from the vendor. This cake is definitely worth the money and with free shipping to HK it's a no brainer. I'll be picking up several more for everyday drinking!

I'll probably order some pu from there too. Any other recommendations from the shop?

Haven't had a chance to try any of the samples yet, but I'll report back on my findings. :)

I've tried a few of their samples, especially the shu they sent me, and have been very impressed. Currently drinking a '92 that tastes like cocoa when brewed in a new medium-fired zini shuiping I'm using for pu erh. I'll post reviews when I'm done with a few more, but the vendor is now my go to source for shu!
