From Seven Cups

Tuochas have a brief history compared to puer cakes. In the beginning, puer cakes were flatter discs to make them easier to stack and transport. The word “tuocha” comes from the fact that these bowl-shaped cakes were originally made in Yunnan and transported to the Tuo River in Sichuan, where they were sold. Initially tuochas were made into 100 gram cakes, but later producers began experimenting with different sizes.

Zao Xiang Xiao Shu Tuo (Date Fragrance Mini Black Tuo Cha) was created especially for new puer tea drinkers. Each piece weighs 3 grams, yielding a mild cup that is more approachable for new puer drinkers. The producers used 5th grade maocha, carefully fermenting it to give a lightly-cooked Chinese Date fragrance. The flavor is more fruity and less earthy than other puers with a smooth, sweet character.

This tuocha brews up bright red and can be re-infused multiple times. If you want a richer taste, you can brew two pieces together.

A sipdown, finally…
I’ve had these for a couple of years now, they are very tasty little tous. Good for travel or to take to the office. These have a nice date flavor. I’ve written about them extensively before so check my previous tasting notes for the details. I would re-order these again if I was going to buy more tea from Seven Cups.
