As much as I love photos of tea cakes, I also like itemized lists. (*hint, hint*)

Just getting started with sheng cakes. All I had before was loose and tou shu.

This one belongs to a friend but it lives in my cupboard / pumidor.

This one is all mine.

There are pics on my website's forum http://www.beanleafgrape.com/forum under the Pu-Erh section if you care to see.

Gee whiz, you ask hard questions. I guess I could just refer you to GGU's answer, but the fact is that there are different reasons for different purchases.

Had samples and liked them:
  • 2004 Huali Premium Ripe Pu-erh Tea Brick
    2007 Bulang Spring Buds
Curious because of discussion in this forum (probably all started by "you know who"89):
  • 2008 American Hao 0801
BBB had a kind word in this blog:
  • 2007 Mengku Arbor Pu-erh Tea Cake
Wesli loved a previous year (sold out) of this cake and maybe this one will also be good:
  • 2007 Golden Melon Tribute Tuocha
I liked the 1998 (sold out) and hope I like this one:
  • 2000 HTC Pu-erh Tea Cake 2 oz
Curious to try Douji brand (?) from Yiwu Zhengshan Tea Company (because of what Jim wrote):
  • 2006 Douji Yiwu Mountain sampler
    2008 Douji Shangdou Pu-erh Tea Brick
    2008 Douji Dadou Pu-erh Tea Brick
Liked the 2007 Jingmai Mountain Spring, wanted to try another Jingmai, and the one Jim suggested won't be in till later this month:
  • 2005 Jingmai Wild Arbor
Looked interesting:
  • Aged Premium Puerh Tea Tasting Sample (20 gr)
    2004 Fengqing Loose Leaf shu
I'm always looking for the perfect mini-tuocha (BTW, this isn't it):
  • 2006 Xiaguan Mini Tuocha
Can't remember! (someone, maybe "you know who"89, may have recommended it...or maybe Bubba_Tea):
  • Rongzhen 9878 Ripe
