Maintaining the Pu-erh tradition of being sold in various shapes and sizes, this selection has been compressed into small nest shapes, often referred to as Tuo Cha. When brewed, Pu-erh Tuo Cha yields a dark, full-bodied brew that has a unique damp and earthy aroma taste. It retains its flavor through several infusions very well, with each piece making approximately 16 ounces of hot tea.
A wonderful Pu Er with lots of golden tips. Excellent!
Brewing and additional information
Our Pu-erh Tuo Cha tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a temperature just short of boiling (190-200 degrees F). Pour the boiling water over each compressed piece to make about 16 ounces of hot tea. Pu-erh Tuo Cha begins to infuse at about 1 ½ minutes and increases to an ideal brewing time of 4 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. However, varying from black teas, Pu-erh will not turn bitter if over-steeped.
