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
