Identification Please

by 135F2 » Oct 12th, '12, 18:34

I have seen different threads started by different posters asking for help from other TeaChat members to identify writings on wrappers, packages, tags, etc. Occasionally, I find myself in that position of needing help from the wiser participants here as well.

So I hope I am not being presumptuous by thinking that a common dumping thread for such inquiries could be useful to all interested in pu'er -- as current and future references.

With that in mind, if I can trouble anyone for your help in identifying this tag on the right, I would really appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

I think it says: Yibang mountain, 2012 spring. Big tree from some ? Wu family (can't read the first character).

Can't find this tea on Taobao. Likely 2005. Nanqiao's teas are..... mainstream.

If it's 2005 it has a fighting chance of some banzhang material
