Yunnan Tribute Tea consists of green Puerh tea leaves which have been compressed into square brick about 5.5 inches (14.5 cm.) in length and about 1 inch (2.5 cm)in thickness. Tea cakes were popular in the Song Dynasty and commonly used in cooking.
To enjoy, break off a small piece from the Yunnan Tribute tea and carefully crumble it into a cup of teapot. Boiling water at approximately 200-212°F/95-100°C should be used for steeping.
