1994 Ya´an Kang Zhuan (Tea Brick for tibetan market, dark tea - hei cha) 450g
Brick tea is necessary part of food for minority nationality in China. This brick is traditional product for Tibet. 20 bricks packed in one bamboo pack is good for transport by horse. This “Kang Zhuan” is from Yingjing Tea Factory in Ya´an city, Sichuan province. Ya’an TF, Tianquan TF and Yingjing TF all produced by National Unity brand “Kang Zhuan”. Traditional tibetans cook a tea first, later put yak butter, salt and eat with “tsampa”, or cook with cane sugar. But this brick has very interesting taste itself, after more than 15 years of good storage, the taste is smooth and sweet. It would be better to wash it two or three times before drinking, so does other Heicha. .
