The mini Pu-erh tuocha brews a red liquor with a satisfying, aromatic, remarkably smooth taste. The rice scent is not from common rice, but a special herbal plant called Pandan.

I added four of these mini touchas to a recent order just to see what the fuss was about. I really tried to like this tea but the rice scent wound up turning me off. It sounded good on paper, especially since other people seem to like it, but it actually made my stomach a little queasy … I’m not sure why I had this reaction. Oh well, at least it was an inexpensive lesson.

sevencups has some of the best mini-tuo’s I’ve found..

I had never heard of sevencups until now. That’s one of the things I like about this group … always broadening my horizons :)

Yeah! Before I joined Steepster I had never heard of hardly any of these companies! :)
My wallet wishes I still hadn’t…sigh…

This is the second pu erh mini tuo cha from a swap. Thank you CharlotteZero! I am quickly falling in love with Pu erhs. I love how the dark liquid appears after a short infusion time, I like how the leaves open up. Anyways this tea is so good, mildly smoky, faint smell of rice cakes, not bitter at all. I did 4 infusions with this and I could have got more, but it was time to CHHAAANGE PLACES! (I assume a place such as this gets its fair share of Alice in Wonderland jokes).

I love the rice pu erhs.

Yes! The only other one I have tried was the Teance’s sweet rice puerh which tasted and smelled like sweet rice!

I ordered a few of these with my order a while back. I love rice pu-erh. Speaking of things found in pu-erh….Should I mention the five inch long hair inside the paper wrapper around the pu-erh? Erm. Ah well, boiling water anyway. This tuocha is actually small unless I’m accustomed to using way too much pu-erh. The flavor is very deep and the cup is very dark (enough leaf anyway!), but there were only really hints of the rice flavor. I’ve tried a really nice one before that had a ton of sweet rice that was almost like kettle corn in every steep. Not a bad tea, but I couldn’t really get that hair out of my mind of course.

Bummer that these were not as good. Thanks for reviewing I’ll keep that in mind. I like the GOOD rice minis myself, too.

Tea Sipper

The Teance version is really good but pricy.

More shu for my belleh! Thanks boychik!!!

This one is REALLY GOOD! Super smooth, and smells just like basmati rice, which I love. Then I got to read about how both are scented with pandan leaves and geek out about it. Fun tea all around! :D

boychik
