Made of densely packed and compressed black tea, this brick was once a common method of packaging and shipping tea, as it was easier to handle and could be shipped over great distances. Given its value and quality, it was also used as currency in Asia and Russia. This block is in good condition, with some loss to the corners, but the design is very crisp and detailed, and the tea has a nice aroma. It measures 9 3/8" x 7 1/2" x 7/8" thick, and weighs two pounds and eleven ounces...
