Tea has been pressed into a block since the Tang-dynasty (618-906). This way, tea was easier to transport and less sensitive to external influences. In this way, tea was transported using camels, over the tea caravan route Dali – Nuodeng – Shaxi – Lijiang. With an image at the front and a kind of division into sections on the back. This division into sections was useful when trading. Given that tea had the same value as silver

    Das Bild ist mit Rahmen außergewöhnlich gut verpackt unbeschädigt bei mir angekommen.
    Allerdings ist das Bild selbst deutlich dunkler und weniger kontrastreich, als es auf meinem Bild-
    schirm aussah.
