I am fairly new to puerh and Chinese teas in general, having just briefly starting to drink them a few years ago and loosing interest. Lately I have a renewed interest in tea, specifically puerh.
While I was going through and sorting out the stale teas that I have had on a shelf for these past few years I found a puerh cake that I bought at the local Chinese grocery. I am pretty certain I overpaid at around 40-50$, however I cannot find any information about this tea online. I am beginning to think it is either fake or just some generic brand for export for tourists or something. Although I cant be certain due to inexperience, based on the flavor and aroma of this puerh compared to others I have bought over the past few weeks, I think it is raw.
I would be very grateful if someone with more experience could help me identify this tea, and maybe let me know how badly I was overcharged.
Searches for Puer Specialty Tea Factory and combinations of Puerh and 2128 yield nothing. I have seen other cakes with similar colors and layout on the wrappers but with different kanji in the middle. Also it came in a fairly ornate paper box with a faux silk lining that I forgot to take a picture of.
