Small Tea

 

Quick fact:
Tea bricks are blocks of whole or finely ground black tea, green tea, or post-fermented tea that have been packed into molds and pressed into blocks. This was the most commonly produced form of tea in ancient China as it was easy to store, transport and retained potency and flavor for longer periods than loose leaf. Many provinces and merchants used them as a form of currency. Tea bricks can be scrapped with a razor or sharp edge and what breaks off can be brewed into tea.
