Fuhai 7536 (2002) and Menghai 7572 (2001)

I recently tasted a Fuhai 7536 bing (2002) and a Menghai 7572 (2001) bing and quite enjoyed them. They are both properly aged (the fuhai in Hongkong until a few years ago in Taiwan). What would be fair prices on these teas in your opinion? The Fuhai is about 120 USD and the Menghai is about 85 USD. What do you think? Also, anyone every tried these teas? Do you know anything about them?

Sounds like they are in the right price range.

If that's true then this YS 7572 was way overpriced when it was in stock:

Probably. But we are talking about a Chinese market. Fuhai is usually over $100 for a good cake from early 2000's. But, there is always the question of how the cake was stored. Fuhai can be too wet, IMO. And, I still don't really understand all the fuss about Dayi teas. Chinese love brands. Dayi is the ultimate Puerh brand.

I don't get it either. I shudder to think of the possibility of a brand such as Yunnan Sourcing becoming trendy in China.

I doubt it there much too small.

Sounds about fair. YS's prices reflect the crazy mainland market, which is totally out of whack with value for money. $160 for a dry stored cooked puerh really isn't my idea of a good deal.
