How would they dry this after pressed the steamed leaves into shape?

They said: "精选勐海地区核心古茶山的顶级大树茶为原料"
(Specially selected Menghai central region ancient tree mountain top grade old tree material ....) Some say it's the same material as 2010 70th Ann. cake.

Just looked at the price ¥28,000 ? This can't be right. Even only just 1,000 been produced, pure marketing hype.

Of course, but if you were rich and famous, wouldn't you want one of these adorning your tea room?

Exactly. You are not their target market, Apache.

Their target market is some guy who pays for new BMWs in cash.

BMW? Only mistresses buy BMWs. Real men buy Ferraris, and then crash them.

Seriously, there have been two major incidents of wealthy young people crashing Ferraris and killing themselves and others. One notorious incident you can find a video of, that happened in Singapore. Of course, the other is the now infamous driving while blow-jobbed incident involving the outgoing premier's right hand man's son.

There are even more incidents involving those cars, actually, like one crazy street race. Ferraris are a menace to Chinese society, really.

BMW and Ferrari are for people who just have "new money". For those who have "old money", they would have Rolls driven by professional drivers while they are sitting at the back sipping gin and tonic or expensive teas.

The person driving the rolls would never buy this. They wouldn't dream of drinking anything younger than a Haung Yin.
This is definitly a Ferrari owners tea.

Let me clarify, he is buying the BMW in cash for some girl he met at KTV. His ernai drives a pink Porsche. His wife drives the Bentley, or possibly Maybach.

He doesn't buy this tea to drink, it is to put in his office and point at.
