This teacut form of Hu Zhang is not a fine powder. It is more like the consistency of sand from the beach. If using a reusable teabag the Hu Zhang can easily be contained in the bag without causing all the herb to float to the bottom. Making tea with a tea cut herb can help avoid causing a "muddy tea" which some people find unpleasant to try and drink.
