Will do, but I'll have to wait until the end of this month. This will be the wife's anniversary present to me. I didn't want to spend my own money. :lol:


gotcha. :wink: :wink:

omegapd, I look forward to seeing your comments especially on the first brick. I never had this but once gave one such brick to a tibetan friend since the retailer says this is the kind of brick traditionally supplying tibetan or mongolian regions. The fu cha bricks are generally inexpensive in chinese market, but are thought of highly for their great health benefits. And the manufacturer from Yi Yang, Hunan is one with very good reputation.

:lol: That takes the adventure out of it.

I was wondering how it is. I was looking at the 90's tibetan tea on YSL

Yeah, I was looking at that one too. Looks interesting. Very crude leaves.
