They do indeed, also salt.
I once stayed for a few days in a Tibetan monastery in India where one night, refusing our polite declinations, our hosts would pour us cups of this tea and, unable to physically drink it, we'd covertly pour them away into a nearby flowerbed only to have them refreshed each time our hosts returned.
I still have some tightening of my stomach at the recollection of that tea

I have the brick and it's also very good (I'd say 90% of the 2007 brick, but also a lot cheaper).
I've heard that the 2010 fu brick they offer is not that great so even though the 2011 is younger, it might be a good thing.
