Menghai shengs from tuochatea.com

Tuochatea sells the 2008 Dayi 7542, 8582 and other blends for suspiciously low price. Did some of you have any experience with them?

The 8582 is legit and aged very well. It is a very pleasant sheng with no off flavors or any hint of excess humidity. A friend of mine ordered the 7542 a whole tong. I can update you after his tong comes in if you wish. Feel free to message me if I can be of any assistance. 8)

They take about 9 or 10 weeks to delivery but their packaging for everything to arrive to you is really good. Lots of double wrap foam and each cake packed separately.

I have both. The 8582 batch is <806>. The 7542 is also <806>.

The 7542 in particular is highly compressed.

Cheers.

I guess they forgot change prices of their teas in this website, Good chance to buy cheap big factory teas. Xiaguan and Haiwan are also cheaper than actual prices in China shops or Taobao I think

Wow, just had to bite on a tong of the 8582 and a couple of the 7542. Too good to pass up. Thanks for the heads up. Now the long wait begins :wink:

Figured I'd jump on the bandwagon so I ordered a few different menghai and xiaguan sheng puerhs. Hopefully they're well stored and real but I just couldn't wait for it to be verified :lol: The puerh bug made me do it :roll:

Ditto.

Good to know that if the price is too good to be true I'm not the only one who has made a mistake :)
