Angel's Comment:

If you like the taste of Sheng Pu-erh, or want to try compressed tea of medium weight, you will be satisfied with this 100g Sheng Tuocha.

To make good Sheng Pu-erh, the picking of fresh tea leaves is strictly required. It must be picked around the term of Qing Ming. This 100g Tuocha was compressed in July, 2006. It has dark green color, and looks cute when held in hands. This Tuocha is in 7cm width and 4.5cm height. The leaves are soft after brewed.
