There are various shapes of pressed Pu'er tea on the market, including big cake, small cake, tuo-shaped, pumpkin-shaped, brick-shaped and so on.

Yunnan Pu'er tea is a major specialty product in Yunnan and is loved by many people. 357 grams is relative to the cake tea. The common size cake of Pu-erh tea is mostly 357g, while other shapes of Pu'er tea such as Tuocha, brick tea, etc. Generally do not have this weight, and neither is the cake tea.

From a historical perspective, Pu'er tea cakes are also called Qizi cakes, each weighing 357g, and its historical origin must be talked about from a long time ago:

In ancient times, in order to reduce disputes on weights and measures, the government formulated mandatory standardization measures for border-related transactions in order to facilitate statistics, tax collection, and transactions. For example, the ancient round tea (ie Qizi cake) weighs 7 taels per round, and the seven yuan is a tube, which weighs 49 taels (16 taels is a catty, and 49 taels is 3.06 catties at the time); 32 tubes are a yin (weight 98 catties). ), close to 100 kg. After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the weight of Qizibing was set at 357 grams, and the weight of each tube and basket was closer to an integer. For example, "a tube weighs 7 slices × 357 grams/ slice is approximately equal to 2.5 kg; a basket weighs 12 tubes × 2.499 kg/tube =29.988 kilograms is approximately equal to 30 kilograms. In this way, the original fragmented numbers become an integer after being added up, which is convenient for the purchase and sale management of Pu'er tea manufacturers.
