The Convenience of Little Blocks of Tea

April 20, 2009



I picked up a couple pieces of this 2003 Fang Cha Pu-erh at Teahouse Kuan Yin a couple of weeks ago. I don’t believe I’d ever seen pu-erh in tiny squares before. They are about an inch and a half wide.

They brew into a wonderful, sweet pu-erh that lasts for at least six infusions. Each infusion tastes better than the last, releasing more of the flavor and character of the tea.

So all I have to do is toss one in with boiling spring water on the way out the door in the morning and then I have tasty tea all day, each time I add water. I am not one to spend any more time getting ready in the morning than is absolutely necessary, so I like the convenience of this way of tea.

One thing I found interesting was that the character on the front of the little package is 檟, which in Pinyin is “jiǎ,” an old term for the camellia sinensis bush.
