Can Anyone Tell Me What This Is?

Does anyone have any information on this tea? I am sorry for the picture quality. When I see it in person I can get better pictures of it.

Can you take a closer picture of the certificate (The one with numbers)?

You'll also see these puerh bricks for sale all over in places like aliexpress and taobao.

Here's a site showing one of the tea shops chrl42 mentioned:

Is it any good? I am guessing it's Sheng but I haven't seen it yet.

What little of the brick in the picture I can see looks darker than most sheng to me. Most of the bricks I see from that company offered online are usually ripe puerh but given that chrl42 said it was a 2016 Man Zhuan it's probably raw. I've not tasted that tea before but perhaps jayinhk has. Hey Jay, where are you? :lol:

Hey! Never seen these bricks and they don't look particularly enticing, but they might be ok tea. Hard to say without trying it ;) Also the packaging is very Mainland...doesn't look like that brick has anything at all to do with HK from here!

No idea about the tea, but agree about the package being very "Mainland." I don't think Amazon's frustration free packaging would be very popular in China.
