This is pressed Shou Mei (寿眉) white tea cake from the "Shun Ming Dao" Brand. 

This is a high quality Shou Mei that is incredibly smooth to drink.  Deep and thick sweet fruity taste with a vanilla after-finish.  It's also very infusable (takes many steepings) and can also not be overbrewed.  It performs well brewed western style.  Take a chunk an throw in a thermos of hot water and hit the road.  An hour or more later you'll be rewarded with a thick creamy brew rich with spices and vanilla!

Smooth and creamy shou mei!  Don't let the coarse leaves of this tea fool you. It's very sweet and full bodied with a vanilla spicy sweetness.

There is a saying in Chinese in regards to aging white teas:   一年茶、三年药、七年宝 - First Year it's Tea, In the Third Year it's Medicine, after Seven Years it's Treasure!
