Pu-Erh Tea Brick
The 2010 tea brick is perfect for drinking now, or for putting up and aging. This tea offers tremendous value in a small package, with one 250g brick of tea being able to make 80 + pots of tea. This tea is designed for the cafe and home use, as it delivers the maximum price per cup advantage — all the while offering all of the health benefits associated with Pu Erh.
This 2010 tea brick is a great entry point into the traditional forms of Pu Erh (cakes, bricks etc). The amount of handling required is minimal in breaking apart the brick. This unfamiliar format deters some, though appeals to many as being most authentic and traditional. It is also kind of fun. Highly recommended for those who wish to experience this tea, in the way it is is meant to be received.
