These mini tuos are super adorable. 2-3cm across
@mark When I spent a couple of weeks in Yunnan 14 years ago, to make sure I’d always have tea to drink, I bought a 100g Nanjian tuo right after getting settled at the hotel.
But beyond that, especially in Italy I think, coffee is a very standardized product (Borbone may be better than Illy, but in an important sense they're the same thing.) Tea, though, even just in Yunnan, has many many genres *as well as* wide variation in quality.
This is a tiny instance.
