TU '12 GFZ tastes like heavy version of GFZ, and is an okay tea, but it just didn't have the kind of greatness that good tea from the area does. Bottom line, $200 is a lot of money to pay for such a tea, and there are better values in TU stocks as well as elsewhere.
I agree with that assessment (that the money can be spent better on other cakes, that is), only mentioned it because AllanK specifically asked for gushu at $150-200. Some of the other teas from TU that I've tried are both cheaper and in my opinion better. Enjoyed this a lot too, but not thinking of buying a cake of it...
