Tea from bejing

My coworker went to Bejing for class project she bought me back tea !! And tea accessory a wood strainer. 

The tea she got me is called puerh tea -- it's made and packed into a cake and set away to age.  These tea cakes can range from a few dollars to thousands!  Here are some facts on puerh tea:

Pu-erh Tea has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for generations to inhibit "internal dampness" (a term used in Chinese medicine to describe a build up of internal energy due to the spleen`s inability to transform energy that it receives from the stomach) and to invigorate the activity of the spleen and stomach. Other traditional uses include the removal of toxins from the body, curing dysentery, weight loss, improving eyesight, promoting blood circulation and reviving those who have over indulged in alcohol.
