This is a Pu-erh raw cake produced by the Chinatea (中茶), one of the specialized branches of the COFCO (China Oil & Foodstuffs Corporation - listed in the world's top 500 companies).
The product brand Chinatea was first registered in 1951 and was authorized to be used by CNNP (China National Native Produce & Animal By-Products Import & Export of the Yunnan Province) soon after. It has been one of the oldest and most influential Chinese tea brands since.
The Chinatea Pu-erh green label is one of the CNNP's traditional products and has been in production since the 50-60's. The products typically use tea crops harvested from the arbor tea trees of the Meng-Hai area. The early ones were of extremely high quality and high collection value. The more recent ones are considered to have largely inherited the traditional values and qualities, great product for daily consumption.
