Puerh tea brick (Boxed) details and description
This Puerh tea brick has been specially selected and processed from the finest and tender raw tea leaves. Rich in aroma and smooth in flavour. Unlike many of the tea bricks which are now more ornament than designed for use this tea brick is designed for you to break off a bit and make a delicious cup of Chinese Puerh tea. This tea brick doesn't have the intricate designs of the other tea bricks, it is much more a pressed circle of pu erh tea leaves.
The tea brick is wrapped in Chinese printed paper, and comes in its own Steenbergs Gift Box, complete with information leaflet. Wonderful unusual gift for tea lovers.
To loosen the tea: tea bricks are hard and compressed. This is how they are meant to be. The way to loosen the tea is traditionally to use a needle or knife, but you can use a screwdriver or chisel. Holding the brick flat to the surface, try and find an edge within the tea and then patiently try to loosen it. Once the needle or sharp point is within the tea brick, you need carefully to insert it further and rotate and press until it is loose. Be careful that you do not injure yourself.
