Help Identify Mystery Tea

by bintuborg » Feb 14th 16 6:22 pm

Hi!!!

So Landlord went to China and received a large brick of tea as a gift. I was wondering if someone could help me identify it?? I suspect it is Pu'er but if someone here knows Chinese and could read the label, that would be greatly appreciated.

See below pics! It is yummy tea by the way. Thanks!!!

It's written in latin characters in your first image: it's FuZhuan tea :)

Yes, it is not as common in the US/Europe, I think in part because of the spores. You are welcome! :)
