Loosely translated Imperial Palace.
It is made from young buds and is considered as the highest quality of shou pu erh. Qualities that supposedly help it reach the menus of the imperial court.

The higher grades of ripe pu-erh tea contain more buds, while the lower grades have more leaves in bigger sizes.
