How to handle pressed Pu Erh 

Pu Erh tea is most commonly available in cake or brick form as well as in loose leaves. Sometimes aged in bamboo leaves. If you are using pressed Pu Erh, try not to break the leaves when prying them from the cake, as this will damage them, making the tea bitter. 

Pu Erh continues to ripen and age over time, so can be kept for many years or even decades and tasted each year to experience the developing flavours.
