Well, Augie, that brings us to the part of Pu that I like the least
: cataloging it, copying over the meaningless Chinese words and wondering why the heck I bought that cake anyway. Since I have to do these tasks at some point, however, I might as well humor you and list the info here, but I've only tasted one, so the others might all taste like insecticide for all I know!
Starting from the upper left and going clockwise:
1) 2007 Guoyan Youle Mountain Wild Arbor Raw cake, 400 gr, $10.90Puershop
2) 2007 Mengku Mu Ye Chun Raw Cake of Yongde, $18.60
3) 2008 Xiaguan "Golden 8100" Raw cake, $12.50
4) 2005 Dehong "Golden Melon" raw, 500 gr (like a big tuocha), $11.00
5) 2005 Gong Ting Tribute Ripe Mini-Cake, 100 gr, $7.60
(left to right - both are bricks)
2007 Haiwan 9908 Old Nugget Ripe Brick, 500 gr, $20.99 (suggested by Dizzwave and Insanitylater - tasty, easy to brew, and keeps on going)
2007 Yongpinhao Yiwu Puerh Ripe Brick (the smaller brick), 250 gr, $5.46
I think I ordered most of the YS ones because Trioxin and I were going to do a Puerh Forum tasting of them, and I think a major draw may have been that they were cheap. But mostly, I have no idea why the Gods dropped these beautiful things in my lap. Even less do I have a notion of when I may be able to consume this enormous amount of tea!
