In general, a lot of people has a perception that ripe Pu-erh tea gives a moldy, earthy smell, and some even thought it smelt like antique furniture or stinky feet. First of all, the well-made Pu-erh teas shouldn’t give such an unpleasant smell. The strange smells derived from pollution of wrong type of mold or contamination of bacteria when the fermentation is not being correctly carried out. The odor like smelly feet or dried squid is produced by bacteria. In fact, it is doubtful if these teas are safe for consumption.

The “Mini Ripe Pu Erh Bricks” are compressed into 4-5g per piece. Each piece of the mini bricks is individually wrapped in gold paper, so it is very handy to carry around; people can even put it in their own pocket. Unlike the conventional Pu-erh which normally exist in a much bigger size (like a piece of pizza or cake), people do not have to dismantle big tea cakes or bricks; instead they can directly brew a piece of Mini Pu Erh Bricks in their teapot.
