An odd name, Pu-erh is a fermented dark tea from China - The Pu-erh tea brick is made by cave-aging the tea. It's then formed into a solid brick and a design placed on it. Bits of tea can be broken off to make a cup of tea. In the ancient Orient, these tea bricks were carried on trips by camel-back and used for making tea or in commerce. The name seems harsh but Pu-erh is mild and earthy.
