This is a fully-fermented 2009 pu-erh brick from Southwest China, compressed for storage and collective purposes. Break off a piece of the brick (about a teaspoon's worth per 8 oz. of water), drop it into boiling water, and watch as the leaves expand to create a robust and dark cup of pu-erh tea!

Pu-erh was once offered exclusively to emperors of China, and is highly regarded in traditional medicine as a tonic that aids in digestion and detoxifies the body. Modern studies in China and Japan indicate that naturally-aged pu-erh may aid in weight loss, lower blood sugar, and reduce cholesterol. Pu-erh tea can be re-steeped multiple times during the day.

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
