Hi Dinosara! Hope you are doing well.

Super neat handwriting on the bag… That says “Gong Ting Pu’er,” which literally means ‘palace’ or ‘imperial’ pu’er. It is a designation of grade often seen attached to these looseleaf small buds and leaves for shu pu’er. Not an official grade exactly since anyone can call a tea gongting, but many gongting pu’ers share a similar sweet and clean quality.

I hope you had a wonderful time in China. I am on my way back there in April to help get my friend Weiwei’s tea bar and reading room started and to do filming for the spring harvests.

Thanks so much David! I got it as a free sample after I bought some tieguanyin from a woman in the market in Maliandao. Great to know what it says.

Enjoy your trip to China!
