Black Tea Brick
Drink a piece of history with this Black Tea Brick from Oliver Pluff & Company. Tea bricks are composed of tea twigs and leaves that are finely ground, then pressed and preserved into dense forms for the purpose of trekking from China to Siberia, Mongolia and Tibet, where they were also traded as a form of currency. In Tibet, they have invented special tools for breaking, washing, and brewing the bricks. Tea at Fort Vancouver was chipped off of these tea bricks as they were the most efficient way to ship the beverage to frontier outposts.
