I recommend the Mengku Mu Ye Chun Old Tree Green Cake over their Spring Tips cake. It's a couple dollars more, but worth it, I think.
Cheers for the pointer. That Old Tree stuff is actually $1.70 cheaper
than the Spring Tips! Its also a 2008 (If this is the one you mean).
Hmm, I just checked my records, and it turns out I was thinking of the 2008 Mengku Mu Ye Chun
Spring Tips, which is different than the regular old 2008 Mengku Spring Tips somehow. I've had that one (the MYC spring tips) and the 2008 Mengku Mu Ye Chun Old Tree Green, and like the latter better. I can't speak for the others though.

Yep, Mengku is an area where tea is grown, just like Menghai, etc. That's why you'll see other factories making stuff of Mengku or Menghai leaves, but it doesn't mean they're from the Mengku Shuangjiang or Menghai factory.

That's the spirit! Welcome to my world.
Just have fun, and try not to let the buying madness get in the way of the deliciously relaxing way of tea! (I have to remind myself quite often.... daily?)
