Default Pressed tea block.. in a bag!

Someone from the UK gave this to me at a science fiction convention. His wife
is from China and drinks it (but I did not think to ask where she got it).
It's a small tea block the size of a thumbnail, just big enough for one cup,
in a nylon bag.

I have seen (and liked) the little hochiao tea blocks that are just the size
for one pot, but this is even smaller and the bag is curious. Has anyone
seen one of these and can identify them?

The label is at http://www.panix.com/~kludge/tea.jpg

I haven't seen it, but it looks tacky. The label says 普克
which seems to be a play on words for "pu-ke" meaning a deck of cards; taken from the English 'POKER'

Compressed puer teabags. The other side reads "aged aroma", and natural original leaf.

Ah, Poker I *knew* they couldnt have intended the unhyphenated word
you get from the Pu3 and Ke4 characters.
