In the 9th century, tea was imported around Asia by either horse or camel. It had to take up as little room as possible so was pressed into a form using the dust and stalks while drying in the sun.

Tea Bricks were so popular in the 20th Century, that they were used as a currency in Tibet, Mongolia, Siberia and Northern China!

We have two new tea bricks in stock:
