Topic: Tea Brick ID help: 2008 Sheng Puerh?

I recently received a gift of a tea brick from a friend who is not as into tea as I am...she was moving and clearing out her apartment, and gave me this, so I have no idea what sort of quality to expect.  So far, I've deciphered the characters 生普洱茶 = Sheng Puerh.  Does anyone have any further insights, both into what the characters say, and if this might be a tea of decent quality?  Photos of the front and back can be found on my blog post:
