I recall someone mentioned that to be good too. :wink: Try the 2006 version of that shu brick. But at that price I rather buy minyan one :lol:

Btw minyan 2013 bang wai u tried yet? a lot keeps telling me it's good, but mine have not arrived :roll:

Even have someone wrote this on the feedback:
出乎意料的好。入口的一刹那,我差不多以为是自己收藏的2012“昌宁红”出品的昌宁古树,那可是特级呀。如老板所言,苦、涩明显,化得很快,茶气足,汤浓。
下面说一下不足:茶碎,不知道沱里面的情况会不会更厉害。
个人觉得超值,绝对超值。从来不补货,这次看来要破例了。

I have two tongs of Tu Lin at home - gifted from someone. Maybe I should open one and see what it tastes like

704 or 702? These 2 seems to be most that people buying in ti/tongs.

IIRC, someone reviewed before that 2009 702 is better than 2012 XG FT chang er yuan cha bing. I ordered 5 pieces from another seller who is selling at 30RMB each. Not sure how good or authentic it is, still waiting to be shipping in my agent's SH warehouse :lol:

Maybe it's the 1998 signature first bing :lol:

Do share what they are and how well they taste after being aged. I think 704 was out long before, but under another name. The material is better, from what I heard.

This kind of conversation makes me feel old :cry: I don't even think of trying any 2013 tea... I tried a couple of (supposedly good) 2010 sheng earlier this week, enjoyed the first a few infusions of each but soon felt both dizzy and hungry :oops:
I do love ming yan hao. If I had the space to store a lot of tea for years, I would buy a lot more of their tea (and other people's tea). But... :cry:

It's like that, I don't think I'll be buying 20-30kg of tea monthly after 2 more months. Then it'll start sink in that u have too much, then won't be as keen :lol:

Mingyan tea maybe I should stop buying bulks of those cheap laoshu/gaoshu ones and concentrate on their over 100RMB gushu but just buy 2-3 bings at a time.

Later the agent will send the shu bricks, if good I'll stock on that. I can trust their claims of using gushu in that shu. :lol:
