Thanks to those who recommended Mengku - I love the 2006 Mengku Qing Bing I got from RoyalPuer.

I found some random Mengku on Puerhshop...Mengku FH Tea Factory. Mengku Jinbiao Tea Factory...aside from Mengku Shuangjiang.

I also have a Mengyang Gouyan cake called 66... a blend from 2007. It's quite bitter but I can tell that it has potential so I'm hoping it's age worthy to some degree.

No, but I've always wanted to. The first place I was going to start was with this, http://cgi.ebay.com/YTRI-Organic-Pre-Mi ... m153.l1262
