The tea leaves at that time were mainly loose tea. During the long-term transportation of tea, they found that loose tea was very fragile during transportation. When the tea cakes were stacked together, they had poor air permeability and were prone to mold.

Compared with cake tea and tea bricks, Tuo tea uses more sophisticated materials: tea greens with more buds and fewer leaves are generally used, with 1 to 2 leaves on each bud.
