Topic: Name my Pu, please.

I've posted this on TeaChat, but it occurs to me that I might be able to get a response here too, so apologies if you also follow that discussion group.

I was just given a couple of beengs of Pu by my father. He had picked them up in China but was not clear about where he got them. Can anyone help me with what they are? I would also be grateful if you could tell me something more about what all the writing on the box means. I am assuming that the writing on the lid is a story of tea but have been known to be wrong before! Anyway, I hope these pics are not too large. I can change them if need be.

Re: Name my Pu, please.

It's a shu pu'er cake by Nanqiao Factory. It looks like it's one manufactured for a tourist tea shop in Lijiang, which is a popular spot in Yunnan for tourists. Specifically, a tea shop located at #75 Old City Square in Lijiang.

Re: Name my Pu, please.

Also, the one-sheet is a pretty uninteresting flier enumerating "Reasons to drink Pu'er Tea".

Re: Name my Pu, please.

Thank you, much appreciated.

Shame the one sheet is not more interesting, but at least it looks pretty! :)
