From SpecialTeas

“The leaves for Tuo Cha are pressed in small “bowls” and individually wrapped. One Tuo Cha weighs approximate 3 grams, just enough for one generous cup. The tea can be stored, and will mature, over long periods of time. In addition, it is very easy to brew, for it does not develop any harshness or astringency even if infused for hours. While Pu-erh is certainly not everyone’s favorite, this Tuo Cha has quickly developed a solid following. A convenient method of preparing this tea is to put 2 – 4 Tuo Chas in a thermos and fill it with boiling water.

Brewed strongly, it can be served as a healthy and hearty starter for the day; prepared lighter, it can be enjoyed as an evening tea.

Recommendations: Use 1 piece per 8oz cup (according to taste); heat fresh water to a roaring boil; let steep for 5 to 10 min."

As usual, it kept getting better the longer I left it in (think >15 min.). When it gets as black as engine oil, it’s about ready. :-) The only downside is that it’s not as warm by that point. I wonder if they’d let me bring a tea warming stand and candle to work…
