Pressing tea into a brick form is a longstanding tradition in China. This was a clever solution for saving space during transportation, helping the tea survive even long caravan trips and reserving its flavour. By pressing the tea leaves into bricks, their valuable aromas were sealed inside and protected from environmental influences.
Even though we no longer have to transport our green teas with blossoms and petals by camel, we are still able to offer our mini-bricks so that you, too, can indulge in this traditional tea pleasure.
It’s best to pour about 400 ml of hot water (100C) over a tea brick and let it steep for 4 minutes.
This tea has the finely tart character for green tea and the cup is bright yellow with fine bits of blossom pressed into the brick.
