Mini Tuo Cha
$27.00 – $36.00 — available on subscription
These individually wrapped mini tuo cha cakes are the new convenient way to have your puerh on the go. Slip a couple in your pocket, and enjoy the pleasure of this finely aged puerh where ever your day takes you. Each tightly pressed, button-sized cake is a perfect individual serving amount, and offers a well-balanced marriage of oak and and sweet smokiness, with the merest hint of citrus. Brews into a stunning ruby infusion, and can be endlessly re-infused. Enjoy in a Gaiwan, or (for a real treat) a well-seasoned yixing pot.
Yunnan, China: With abundant rainfall, mild climate, and fertile land, Yunnan Province has ideal conditions for tea cultivation and is known as the historical birthplace of medicinal teas.
To prepare Mini Tou Cha cakes, gently crumble one cake into a teapot or Gaiwan. Quickly flush (cover the leaves with hot water and pour it off) and appreciate the aroma of the wet leaves. Then infuse with near-boiling water for 1-3 minutes and serve. Puerh tea generally will yield multiple infusions. Always adjust quantity of leaves, infusion time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
