How complicated a test do you plan on making? It should take no more
than a few minutes:

(OK, if you don't have cvs-test set up, that'll take an extra minute or so).

cvs co cvs-test
cd cvs-test

echo this is a file>file.txt
cvs add file.txt
cvs ci -m"new file" file.txt
cvs tag -b abranch file.txt
cvs update -r abranch
cvs ci -f -m"forcing a change" file.txt
cvs tag first_rev_on_branch
cvs ci -f -m"forcing a change" file.txt
cvs admin -l abranch file.txt
cvs tag -b will_this_work
cvs lo file.txt

Experiment concluded. Now that the basic framework is there, another two
commands will answer your last question:

cvs tag -rfirst_rev_on_branch -b how_about_this file.txt
cvs lo file.txt

I'm not trying to be difficult, I'm just trying to teach you how to be
self-reliant in finding the answers. And as a bonus, your co-workers
will be awed at your awesome CVS knowledge ;=)
