Torn wrappers... ugh.

Torn wrappers... ugh.

Hey all. Two of my bings have torn wrappers mostly due to me not being carful enough, but also because one wrapper was not in good shape when I got it in.

Can I buy replacement paper? Or just put it in a paper bag? I've read that it *isn't* rice paper...

I'm also concerned about not knowing which is which if it get separated from the wrapper. How do you stay organized?

The simplest solution is to buy a ziploc bag big enough for the cake. If this is something you regularly drink, you'll be done with it in a few months.

For things that you hope to age, that's a bit more difficult. I'd suggest buying some new paper for it. What paper you get really depends on what you have available.

the nefei ( label stuck in the top layer of tea) should help ID it if the wrapper is lost. Since lots of wrappers (cnnp) look (to me ) very much the same, even having the wrapper/nefei does not always serve to id the cake.

I have had the same problem with a few cakes that have very thin paper. The next time you put an order in from a vendor just ask if they have a few extra wrappers. Yunnan Sourcing and Puerhshop have them. I have gotten a few like that, or just contact a vendor and see if they will sell you some. I also had a tong in which the cakes had no wrappers so I used the extras after opening it.

What about getting some tissue paper (like for gifts)?
