I tried ysllc samples, they are so broken up (NOT CAREFULLY FLAKED) it makes a brew totally bitter. It would give you an unfair tasting of the intended cake. Read a few more tasting reviews from other blogs, then decide on 1 good raw would be my advice.
I always agree sampling is the way to go. The only problem is that, as you said shipping is killer, and a 25 gram sample is about $4.00, when you can get the whole thing for $20 it sounds kinda stupid dont ya think? Not to mention others on this forum rave about the bang for your buck that Mengku teas provide, and I trust them on that, so that is why I dont feel bad about getting a cake like this without sampling. Not to mention if I didnt like it I am sure someone on here would be wiling to buy it from me, to save on shipping from China. Also thanks for the tip about the samples from YSLLC, orguz.
