Speaking about pu-ehr teas, how do folks break open the brick when the block is insurmountably unbreakable?

 

This year I broke open my first pu-ehr/mum tea. I steamed it repeatedly as I was able to break off pieces. But still it was a challenge. (A hammer to the outside of the block did not break it.)

That reminds me.. I haven't been to Chicago's Chinatown in way too long.  A place where nothings too exotic and no price too high, not when it comes to herbs & teas.  These days the only pu-ehr tea I'm seeing is loose leaf!?  Which makes me assume it a poorer substitute.
