From Pure Puer Tea

Factory: Tong Qing Hao
Harvest Year: 2009
Type: Ripe/Shu
Harvest Area: Menghai, Xishuangbanna

This tuocha is unusual because it is hand picked and hand pressed from whole leaves from ancient tea trees. It comes from a company that has been around for 280 years and which provided tea for the Emperor and his court. The tea comes from one of the most famous areas for puer tea. Tuocha offers a convenient size for tea making. It has an extremely clean, smooth, deep, earthy taste. The color is a rich dark amber. The finish is sweet and clean. Each square weighs 6 grams (0.21 oz) and can make 8-10 cups of tea. Each box contains 20 pieces.

Final Notes
Honestly, This mini brick is a good one AND beautiful looking; it has to be one of the most beautifully pressed mini tuo I’ve ever seen. If you buy the 4oz for $24 (20 mini cakes) it is worth it. I had a sample 3 for $5 dollars… that seems a bit too much. That aside, the cake is well made, and you can tell is hand picked, the buds are beautiful and almost completely intact. The pressing is very light so keep that in mind when steeping (so you don’t oversteep past your preferences).
