From Mariage Frères

A famous, traditional green tea, also from Yunnan Province, pressed into the form of a tiny bird’s nest.

It enjoys the same worldwide reputation as its companion, Tuo Cha.

Each tiny bird’s nest produces a mild, refined, relaxing taste.

I wish I liked this more! It’s pretty to watch the compressed tea nest unfurl/disintegrate as it steeps, but the flavor… There’s just not enough there for me to appreciate. I’ve tried steeping it longer, and that has just given me a generic oversteeped green tea taste. Not bad, just not at all interesting.

So this is just green tea in the shape of nest pu erh instead of a green (raw) pu erh?

Adham

Yes – I like the distinctive flavor of pu erh and thought this might be what you’re asking about, a green pu erh. No such luck…

Cofftea

I would think the delicate green tea leaves would get bruised trying to make this shape…
