One of the intentionally aged teas, Pu-Erh has a loyal following.
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)?
