Ok so I haven’t tasted it yet, really it’s just to pretty to break up and put in a cup, I have it on display in my office, it makes for a really cool conversation starter. People look at that and say “that’s really tea?” yep, it’s fun to have around. I plan to buy another and drink it soon, I will review that when I do.
Long before western culture began, tea bricks were carried via camelback and were used as commerce and consumption throughout the Orient. Ancient sources suggest that it is one of the first forms of money known as “Tea Money.” Many use it today to bring a sense of good fortune into a space. The compressed tea leaves are cave aged and meticulously formed into a solid cake with a whimsical background display. A small piece can be broken off at a time in place of loose leaves.
