One of my colleagues visits China regularly and was given this tea as a gift. However they didn’t see themselves making the most of it so offered it to me.

I have no idea what to do with it though. It’s like a circular brick of compressed tea leaves. Do I just take off a chunk and leave it in hot water? Does the temperature matter, and do I need any particular tools?

I’ve only ever used tea bags so I’m a bit lost

Edit: also the expiry says November 2023… but it’s just tea right?

    This is white tea and it shouldn’t be steeped at boiling. I’m not sure what the temp is, but I find it funny the snobby Brit doesn’t know that when the heathen American does!

    (Sorry. Couldn’t rssist.)

      Let’s be honest, taking other countries’ culinary traditions and doing them wrong is our culinary tradition

      Great. Now I have to turn my passport in.
