Try Some Heart Shaped Pu-erh Black Tea

You probably already know that most of the oldest tea in China was formed into "bricks" which could be transported easily and pieces broken off as needed.  This little heart shaped pu-erh tea brick is just enough for 1 cup of tea! It is so cute!

50 hearts come in a tin for $14.95 which comes out to about 30 cents per cup of tea.  These are perfect for spring tea parties!

We purchased these hearts in bulk quantity and separated the broken ones so if you are interested...call the store at 1-719-447-8844.

Those heart shaped tea blocks are very pretty and would make lovely gifts. I've never seen them before and I would love to try some (other than Pu-erh). I'll have to look up Metropolitan Tea Company - thanks.
