Mandala Tea Not-So-Mini-Tuochas
What a treat! For those demanding the finest of ripe tea in a small package, this is it! Customers loved this one so much when we first got it in that we contacted the makers and bought every last ounce they had left.
The material itself originates from Menghai (spring 2003) and was processed into ripe goodness in 2004, dried and then pressed into these little (but kinda big) mini-tuos. The average weight per piece is 8 grams.
Brew it up short for milder and sweet flavors or for “in your face” flavors, brew it up espresso thick with a longer infusion. Tea-riffic either way, sure to please any ripe tea drinker.
We have experimented by doing a rinse or two with boiling water and then a first infusion of 30 seconds in 6 ounces and increasing the times from there subsequently. Some might find this mini-tuo quite favorable in more water, say 12 to 16 ounces. As you like! Get plenty and enjoy the experiment. We can’t say how long these goodies will be available in our shop. Sarah is already wanting to horde what is left! mandalatea.com
