Mini Tuocha Pu-erh
Pu-erh tea comes from the Yunnan province in China. The popularity of Pu-erh tea has been increasing mainly due to the many health benefits that are attributed to it. Studies show that pu-erh not only lowers blood cholesterol but also prevents bad cholesterol from forming in the arteries, that pu-erh has great antioxidant benefits, stimulates weight reduction and is beneficial to digestion.
The approximate 1-inch round, black, individually wrapped mini bowls (bird nest shaped cakes) are from the Yunnan province of China. Each mini bowl brews to a burnt umber color and yields a full bodied, earthy, peaty tasting tea, capable of 3-5 steepings.
To brew add one mini bowl per cup, bring the water to a rolling boil (212ºF) and steep for 2-5 minutes, depending on how light or dark you like your tea.
