Help Identify cake

by Dsquid » Mar 12th 19 2:33 am

Hi all,

Got this off taobao a few years ago and it’s been sitting in the back of my tea closet. I remember trying a sample when I picked it up an that being strong in camphor/medicinal flavors and too bitter. Since then it’s mellowed out a bit and it’s actually become quite enjoyable.

It was a farmer pressed cake that picked up fairly cheaply, but I can’t remember anything else about it and I can’t find any details on the original transaction/taobao listing.

Can anyone help translate what’s written on the wrapper? I’m hoping that might jog something loose in my memory.

That is really a bad handwriting of “collection”.
