I can't tell you if they're real or fake, at least the pics look real enough.

Ziyun is at least 30% more expensive per gram, so I'd imagine Anxiang is a better deal.



Ah, Shu. I might look into this cake- I know I saw it back in the day, but not lately...


Angelina's had it. That's where I got it from. http://www.angelinasteas.com/

I didn't see it, hard to read with that type of font on the thumb nail pic page ...

I think you mean this one?http://www.angelinasteas.com/shoppe/teas/pu-erh/SKU000887-4fd8fa7b1a311-detail.html?

But that is a different cake.

Angelina's teas used to have a buggy website that looked like it was out of date. Glad it's a lot nicer these days...

There are non-factory shu cakes?

02 Banzhang, smooth mellow sweet and slight smokiness and sweet astringency, lingering mouth feel right down to the throat. Lots of oomph. No roughness, no bitterness and the typical Banzhang after effects, lips smacking sweetness, even the cups smells fragrant after the tea has been consumed.

09 Single Linchang estate tea by a Taiwan company (the name escapes me). Very subtle gingerly sweet, not as rough as I had expected from teas that young.

Both very enjoyable and pleasant.

Just tried a sample of the 2012 Snow Mountain Ancient Tree cake from Puerh shop -- a bit of bitterness up front, but a delightfully floral and smooth aftertaste that lasted for the first five infusions (and came back a little later).

Not sure if I'd drop $35 on the cake, but a very tasty drink indeed!

Why isn't this thread stickied? It's quite a good thread for showing your entire collection vs. pu of the day which is for short reviews of a single puerh
