Help ID'ing a beeng cha  
A co-worker recently gave me this beeng cha, and aside from it appearing to be a ripe puerh, I have no idea which factory, recipe, origin etc....any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've been drinking puerh regularly for several months now, but have only had green, the oldest being a Xiaguan Tuo from 1997 (drinking some now in fact....) and my favorite being a Xiaguan Special Grade from 2005 (has a nice camphor/sweet Qi that I love)

It's by Shunhai Factory and called "Menghai Qizi Bing". Shunhai sounds like a play on words ("Along the sea"?) making fun of Menghai for having "Sea" in the name when it's nowhere near the ocean. :) But a native speaker might say I'm crazy.

According to a vendor on Taobao.com, the tea is from 2008.

Dear John,

The cake is a Qiizibing from Menghai in Xishuangbanna, southwest Yunnan. It comes from the Shunhai Tea Factory, a fermented black tea, 357 grams. If you turn the cake over, there should be a stamp with the year.

If you have any other questions, drop me a line.

Hope that helps.
