Hi, please help me to identify this tea. Can't read chinese but can see Menghai and the red piece of paper says 90. Produced in year 1990? :D
Smells like shou Pu.

It says 1990s, so probably not the year of 1990 but anytime between 1995-1999. The wrap says "made by Fu Hai factory, which is in Meng Hai region.

Fu Hai is a reputable factory. They've made some quite nice teas over the years.

I believe they are "next door" to the Menghai factory.
