Probably ain't no such thing as a 600 year Wangongzhai cake (Wangong village is way out in the back of beyond). And even if there was, real cakes go to officialdom, only.
These cakes are explicitly for the gullible and rich.
Another thing to keep in mind, when it comes right down to it, Lao Banzhang gushu is only capable of so many 400g cakes, and it's a large area, for old tea plantations. About 25000 cakes worth every spring (not including summer, fall) if they were pure (I think). Once you're talking about the smaller stands of gushu, and, well...
