2006 Xiaguan Cooked (Shu) Pu-Erh Tuo 100g
These are seriously tasty bricks of excitement!
Wrapped up in paper inside a Chinese box, it’s like opening a present every time you have a cup of tea. Chip off a gram or two and brew over and over again (we got 8 brews out of it before we began to taste more water than tea!), as it releases it’s yellow pink liquor and perfectly balanced sweet earth flavours, without astringent aftertaste.
Editors note: Upon proof-reading this, one of our ‘real opinions’ panel commented: “It’s not yellow-pink when I make it – look!” whereupon she showed the thick black contents of her mug. “The way I make it, it makes my ears flap: wonderful!”. Well, each to their own I suppose.
A joy for the cooked PuErh lover.
