An unusual and decorative advertising tea label.. The tea advertised is for Formosa (Taiwan) Ooloong which is considered to be among one of the finest teas produced on the island. These labels are printed on thin rice paper and an ink that is highly susceptible to water. The prints are extremely fragile which likely explains their rarity. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Advertising Broadsides
