One of my colleagues visits China regularly and was given this tea as a gift. However they didn’t see themselves making the most of it so offered it to me.

I have no idea what to do with it though. It’s like a circular brick of compressed tea leaves. Do I just take off a chunk and leave it in hot water? Does the temperature matter, and do I need any particular tools?

I’ve only ever used tea bags so I’m a bit lost

Edit: also the expiry says November 2023… but it’s just tea right?

    the instructions i found for other teabricks said to cut/snap of a pice and boil it. pur-erh-tea-cake

    and aparently tea doesnt go bad,
    it just looses some flavour
    does tea expire?

    The date stamped on the bottom of your tea tin > or tea bag box isn’t technically an expiration date. The Senior Advisor for Food Safety at the > FDA has stated that the “Best If Used By”
