What is Chinese Pu-erh tea cake

This classic, compressed style of Pu-erh tea has a rich history stretching back centuries, when tea artisans in southwestern China and Southeast Asia produced Pu-erh teas that were pressed into bricks, cakes and tuo cha shapes durable enough for transport. This tea was traded by mule caravan across the "Ancient Tea & Horse Routes" ( 古道) to Tibet and Mongolia, where it became integral to local food cultures as an after-meal digestive and wellness tea. Pu-erh tea became a household staple used as a form of currency to trade for horses and salt. Pu-erh tea has an ancient past originating in Yunnan, China millennia ago. This rare, rich tasting tea is treasured as a healthful, energizing tonic. Its deep, smooth flavor is created through an artisanal pile fermentation process that transforms sun-dried green tea into ripened, full-bodied Pu-erh tea. Vintage Pu-erh tasting Notes - Mellow and smooth with a pleasantly sweet, earthy flavor. Traditional style Pu-erh with a robust, soothing flavor and sweet notes of dark mocha

5 of 5 Complex and rich December 1, 2012
Reviewer: Kate from Canterbury, Kent United Kingdom  
I adore this tea for many reasons. First off, I like to only use a quarter of the drop per cup, which can be re-steeped many times. Secondly, it has such an incredibly deep flavour that I can close my eyes and get lost in it. And lastly, it stores perfectly and lasts forever!

A note: if you find that yours is a little "fishy" in scent, that's fine as younger pu'erhs can have that. Just let it air out for a day or two before you use it! Or if you've brewed a pot and just realised it, don't worry, you can't taste it.

4 of 5 Very tasty pu-erh November 17, 2012
Reviewer: Lauren Henderson from Wallingford, CT United States  
A delicious tea with a bold, complex flavor.  It provides several steepings per raindrop, with each one revealing slightly different aromas and flavors.  Highly recommended!
