I saw an interesting Chinese blog by ulumochi
He quoted an article from a tea trader in Fangcun.
The main points are:
There are very little tradings. Reasons are buyers would not want to enter the market at presenting price knowing that price will continue to drop whereas sellers would not want to loose that much money. So it is a stalemate.
The batch size of 1301 Zaochun is bigger than Danqing, as now Danqing is well below 8k rmb per box, not very likely Dayi could pump Zoachun.
It stated that at the end of this year, Danqing would be around 6k rmb per box and Zaochun would be around 15k rmb.
Moral of Danqing is that selling it earlier would make more money. (Apache: this is very interesting, at the beginning some Dayi flagship stores were limiting it supply and selling it one tong per hour!)
There is a secret Dayi trump card, 2012 Yanyun (岩韻) 201. This tea has been keeping in storage and have not been released. Dayi would only use it as a last resort to lift the market.
p.s. Just did a quick search on TB, one shop selling 201 Yangyun at 1800 rmb per 357g cake. There is only one cake.http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.1.xT5FiB&id=18498166276
