View larger Image

Tea bricks (zhūan chá) are nowadays a great gift idea for tea lovers and those who have everything. In the past, tea bricks were a very common way to transport tea in caravans along the Silk Road. To protect the tea from the climate, it was processed and shaped into bricks. The drying process involved pressing the tea into its classic brick shape, often with a decorative look to it. Tea was also used as a currency and you get a hint of this by the segments that are pressed into the back. For more on tea bricks, try Wikipedia.


These smaller tea bricks are: 18.5cm x 12cm x 2cm. The design on these smaller tea bricks involves trees surrounding a pagoda style building with eight panels on the reverse.
