This photo shows shou (ripened) Pu-erh tea from Menghai Tea Factory. The packaging of the tea is shown top right, a red cylinder printed with Chinese characters. A clay teapot, presumably used to steep the tea, is shown top center. Lower right, there is a cup of the tea, showing its very dark color and partial opacity. The compressed tea cake, sitting in the unwrapped paper wrapping, sits to the left.
