No. 182 - Raw Pu-erh Mini Tuocha

Quick Overview

Unlike many other teas which should be consumed shortly after production, such as green and white teas, Pu-erh tea can either be brewed immediately or it can be stored and aged for many years, much like a fine wine. Most Pu-erh teas are classified by the year they were produced and the region they were grown in, much like many wine vintages. In fact, when it comes to Pu-erh tea, the longer it is stored and aged properly, the more complex the flavor and the more valuable the tea gets.

Pu-erh tea has a rich and interesting history behind it. Pu-erh tea is named as such because it is grown in the city of Pu-erh in the Yunnan Province of China where it has been harvested for hundred of years, and was originally grown and discovered there. While some people think that Pu-erh tea is a type of dark tea or black tea, it is actually a type of tea in itself, much like a black tea, a green tea, or an Oolong tea. Pu-erh is a classification of tea by itself, and is available in loose leaf form, but is mainly produced in tea bricks, or tea cakes, which are compressed Pu-erh tea flakes which have been pressed into a particular shape or size. Pu-erh Mini Tuo Cha tea cakes are made from premium flaked Pu-erh tea leaves which have been compressed into the shape of a small beautiful bird's nest, then individually wrapped for better storage and easy brewing.
