Rewrapping puerh tea cakes

MarshalN has posted a nice instructional video about how to re-wrap a puerh tea cake in its paper after you have sampled some of the tea.

You can view it on his website at

I think the western tea world just became that little bit neater.

If you weren't so far away and so hairy, I would kiss you! I just love your sense of humor.

The distance may be our only obstacle as I've just gotten my first double edged safety razor in the mail a few days ago. I can drink tea all day but my face can only take so much razor practice, if I get carried away I may shave a few seconds off my 50m front crawl time to boot.

wow, I didn't know there was an official way to do it. I just folded it as best I could and stuck it in the pantry. The dude who gave me a chunk of his old cake just tossed his in the box it came in, wrapper long-gone. I will work on my 30 folds (no more no less) next time I break it out! LOL. I bookmarked his blog, I'm probably doing a lot more wrong too. Thanks for posting.
