No. 174 - Ripened Rose Pu-erh Mini Tuocha

Quick Overview

Our aged Pu-erh tea is secondary-oxidation and post-fermentation tea, which is referred to as ripened, or cooked, Pu-erh tea. Each miniature compressed tea cake contains a tiny red or pink rosebud packed firmly inside the Pu-erh tea cake which lends a lovely subtle nuance of a floral tone to the earthy, musky Pu-erh tea.

Pu-erh tea can be either brewed immediately or if stored properly, it can be aged for many years, while increasing in flavor and value, much like a fine wine. Many other teas such as green tea, white tea and flavored teas should be used shortly after purchasing, but with a good Pu-erh, you can make your tea last for months, even decades! Usually, pu-erh teas are classified by the year they were produced and the region they were grown and processed in, and that information is usually written on the packaging, quite like a wine vintage. With fine Pu-erh tea, the longer it is stored and aged, as long as it is stored properly, the more complex the flavor and the more valuable the tea gets. Aged Pu-erh teas are known for their ability to break down fats, and to help with weight loss, so they are often served in China after a heavy meal.

The tissue paper wrapped over the cake or brick can help to keep the tea dry and protect it from foreign flavor, but it is very thin and breakable. The tissue paper will wear and tear after long time's storage due to oxidization. You can place the Pu-erh tea in sealed bag or box to keep it from air.
