Can someone tell me what tea this is?

I got this as a gift and I fell in love with it!
Unfortunately I have no way of knowing what kind of tea it is…
Here’s the link to the image: http://tinypic.com/r/34gvvko/5

If someone could just translate the box or even help me find an equivalent I would GREATLY appreciate it!

I can’t translate but if you could show or describe the leaf and the end result we might be able to help you out a bit. :)

Someone recently posted that they would be happy to translate for folks. Was it MistyPeak teas? I will try to find it and post!

This is a pu’erh tea, but there’s no information to indicate it’s a sheng or shu pu’erh.

Thank you so much! It’s not precise but it’s more than I knew before!!
Here’s a picture of the rest of the set: http://i39.tinypic.com/alq3ye.jpg
Maybe it will shed some light on the kind of tea.

The leaf of the kind I really like was wrapped in hard rolled balls and then wrapped in a small piece of paper. The rest of the tea in the boxes were loose leaf.

Maybe they’re mini Tuocha pu’erh tea? As for another picture, from the left to right they are: Tie Guan Yin, Green tea(the tin doesn’t show its specific name, I guess maybe it’s a Dragon Well tea? I’m not sure about this), Bi Luo Chun Green tea, and the last is pu’erh tea.

If you still had some of the wrappers someone may be able to id the pu-erh for you.

I don’t have the wrappers :( but since they’re individually wrapped is it more likely that it’s shou pu-erh?

TeaVivre, you are a lifesaver!
The green tea definitely isn’t dragon well but at least now I won’t be too confused about steeping it.
The tie guan lin is really good. I though it might have been an oolong but I drank it up so fast I don’t remember! It was yummy.
