    I was in Switzerland to see an old friend and she told me that while travelling in Asia for work, she had been given a Pu-Erh but she has no info on it (when, what,… how long should it mature?).

    Here is a link to pictures I made (

    I told her that you were the best of the best. ,)

    Ha ha, we may be the best of the best but nobody aside from @gingkoseto speaks any Chinese language. Wait, @tea-author does. Warren, are you able to shed any light on this Pu’er?

    @jackie I could translate it, but I can’t open the photo link from here. If @xavier emailed me the photo instead, then I might be able to help.

    Here is @tea-author ‘s translation and his comments.

    The yellow label says:
    Chen Zhuang Registered Trademark
    Yunnan Province Famous Brand
    Puerh Tea
    500 Grams
    Kunming Tian Pin Tea Limited Liability Co.

    Inner booklet:
    Yunnan Chen Zhuang Puerh Tea
    Puerh Brick Tea
    Shou Tea (checked) /Sheng Tea

    Product Name: Zhuang Chen Brand Book-Shaped Puerh Tea
    Ingredients: Quality Large-leaf Variety Tea
    Net Weight: 500 Grams
    Quality Grade: Special Grade
    Product Standard Code: GB/T22111 (a code for puerh tea)
    Food Safety Inspection Certificate Number: QS5300 ******
    Shelf Life: Suitable for long-term storage.
    Storage Method: Keep away from  dampness, odors, store in unpolluted environment.
    Address: Zhongpiying, Longquan Town, Kunming, Yunnan province
    Tian Pin Tea Brand Store
    Address: Kunming, Kangle Tea Shopping Center
    Production Date: March 1, 2010

    So basically, it’s a shu brick tea puerh, of 500g, from a regionally branded tea company based in Kunming. Where the material comes from – the packaging doesn’t say.

    They list their brand store in a tea market – seems like it’s a small company.

    Any idea on how long my friend should wait before she begins drinking it?

    @xavier It’s one of those fully-cooked puerhs, not the raw (sheng) kind, so your friend could drink it anytime. Aging it is not going to make any difference.
