It's safe to say that I'm a newby when it comes to puerh. I've only got a handful of bricks and cakes but so far they have all come sealed in their own ways. I just recieved a few pieces and I've got some ?'s about them. This is a Mengku cake.
It came unsealed like this. Is this normal for mengku cakes? Also, I received a few 100 gram bricks that actually weigh more like 85 grams or a bit less with the wrappers. Is this normal? I normally don't weigh my tea when I get it. I just happened to slap one on the scale because it looked so small, and yes, my scales are accurate. I know humidity can affect the weight of the tea, but this seems very light.
