A-Z of tea   B is for brick

A tea brick is compressed tea in the shape of tablets or bricks which have been used over the centuries as both forms of currency as well as for drinking. Whilst bricks are no longer carried for their value, tea in this form is widely drunk in Mongolia, parts of Central Asia and particularly in Tibet where butter tea is part of the staple diet. The tea brick in the photo is from Russia.
