I understand the hype of these kinds of cakes, and suspect it isn't unfounded, but just have decided not to buy into it. Maybe in 20 years I'll be sorry.
Of all the samples from tea urchin I've tried so far I really like the shun shi yi wu 2006. And at 76 usd / cake it's a better value IMO.

And you can buy the 2012 Longyin for 800 RMB, 1/2 the price! What a freakin bargain...
