I have some compressed hongcha that's the size and shape of those "Fun Size" candy bars. I am not certain a bullet would penetrate it - company might have stumbled on some new body armour technology.

If it's the traditional "mi zhuan" (rice brick) then it's supposed to be broken with its traditional tool - a saw. The brick is made hard and is often evaluated based on the engravings on the surface (which can't be made elegant if the brick is not harder than a real construction brick). :mrgreen:

Nah, these are like this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c ... n-Size.jpg

Except not totally flat on one side. Smaller than my thumb. The bigger ones you're talking about I have seen. I'd like a fancy one for display sometime, though I doubt they'll infuse well.

What kind of saw are we talking?
