List of publications 1) First Step to Chinese Puerh Tea by Chan Kam Pong, 2) Profound World of Chi Tse 1950-2004, 3) The Art of Tea Magazine No 4
Additional Note: It is my impression that Menghai Tea Factory production remains the most liquid and heavily traded brand within the puerh market to the extent that the Menghai brand is the closest to tea money a compressed teacake will get. The pre 2004 productions have undergone much speculation and hype in recent years and as a result become money makers for investors. At the same time for those who wish to procure pre 2004 Menghai it is important to be aware that this category of tea will always likely command an inflated price. The attraction herein rests in the puerh history that this era of Menghai represents, a comfort of mind in relation to aging from knowing that past vintages from this era have been highly successful, and perhaps an exciting opportunity to root for (by owning) a tea that may one day develop into the class of the highly acclaimed 1950-60s Masterpieces.
