Native Name: Lu Tuocha
Origin: Southern Yunnan, China
Introduction: The Tuocha refers to a family of bowl shaped teas, commonly available as Green tea Tuocha, Black tea Tuocha and Puer (aged) Tuocha. It is made at one of the few organic puer farms in Southwestern Yunnan, China. In making the Green Tuocha, more mature leaves of the tea plant are selected in summer, sun-dried, steamed, and then shaped into small bowls. The process of shaping of the leaves has changed over the years from ‘old-style’ wooden molds or hand pressing, to more mechanized and automated steps. Wrapped with paper, the Tuocha are an ideal size (3 grams) for individual serving.
