Our sampler consists of five 5 gram(.17oz) tea bricks neatly compressed and stacked into a beautiful small gift box about 1/4 the size of supermarket tea boxes. The bricks are wrapped in a locally grown high quality paper that helps to enrich the breathability of the tea, preserve its freshness and encourage the continued fermentation of the tea microorganisms. The tea itself is a black tea that's post fermented and continues to grow in flavor over time.It lasts indefinitely on the shelf,unlike the other teas like Oolong,Green and White that do have a shelf life. Each 5 gram (.17oz) brick makes up to a gallon of tea. Rinse the tea brick to get the natural smells emboldened, then brick off a piece or put the whole piece in boiling water steep for a few minutes and then drink either hot or cod.known to help in weight loss, cholesterol, digestion sugar blood glucose and poisons use instead of a water filter.
