Mini Green Tuocha Jasmine Scented

The mini Pu-erh tuocha brews a clear amber liquor with a satisfying, aromatic, remarkably smooth taste.

*Mini Pu-erh tuocha
*Manufactured by: CNNP
*Weight about 4 to 5 grams
*Vintage: 2010
*Green, raw or unfermented
*Premium class
*Loose tea leaves
*Caffeine: Moderate

The Gongfu brewing method for this tea is to take one piece in a teapot. Heat water until boiling. Pour enough water to cover the tuocha, steep for 15 seconds and pour off water. This is called ‘rinsing the tea’. Add more water and steep for 20 seconds. Pour water into tea cups or a secondary teapot for drink. Water at the bottom of the pot will be stronger. 15 secs for the second infusion, additional infusions should be steeped for longer, 30 secs for the third, 60 secs, 120 secs, etc until tea is depleted. Steep longer for a stronger taste.

Definitely a very nice clean and refreshing raw pu’erh!

The tea is much sweeter than I anticipated. I found an underlying charcoal smokiness to the liquid, enhanced with roasted vegetal notes- more like olive-oil brushed & grilled asparagus. The jasmine is very muted during the first 3-4 cups, but then there’s the awakening of great synergy in the steepings that follow! What a very nice treat!

The wet leaves are broken large leaves. Nice quality – no noticeable damage or defected leaves. These leaves produce a green amber liquid, with a small amount of bitterness. More medicinal, very dry sensation to the tongue – no moisture. Almost a cottonmouth feeling, then trying to eat salty crakers (this feeling is only on the tongue – not whole mouth) This is a nice characteristic though. Obviously, the only way to counter this, is to have more tea! :)
