From Tao Tea Leaf

A great cooked pu’er infused with the flavour of rice for a crisp, sweet and refreshing brew. The dry leaves are individually wrapped miniature pu’er cakes. Once opened the leaves are highly compressed mixes of green, black, brown and copper colour. They teas liquor is a deep orange, almost cherry.

Type: Rape(Shou/Cooked)

Region: Yunnan Province, China.

Other Names: Nuo Mi Xiang Xiao Qing Tuo

Steeping Guide:

Teaware: Yixing Teapot or Ceramic Gaiwan

Amount: 1 Cake (Each cake about 5g)

Temperature:100°c (212°F)

Steeping Time: We suggest that you rinse your tea leaves before enjoying them, simply add water to the leaves and discard. This wakes them up and they are ready to go. For your first steep, we suggest a 30-50 second steep. For the second steep 10 seconds is best, simply add 5 seconds to each of your next steeps. This will allow you to experience the full range of tastes the leaves have to offer.

*These steeping directions are for a traditional Gong Fu style tea, if you are brewing this tea in a regular cup we recommend steeping for 2 – 3 minutes. This tea can be steeped 4 times.

i find myself at a cross roads with this puerh. on one hand there are aspects that i find vastly superior, on the other i find some elements disconcerting.

i really like the fact that it isn’t musty as some puerhs i’ve tried lately are. there’s a healthy but not overpowering astringency that balances the flavours out so that i am certain i am drinking tea and i haven’t been whacked in the mouth with a moss pillow.

what i find odd are the smell and taste. it smells like popcorn, and it tastes like sticky rice. makes a certain amount of sense, it’s a rice shu…. but sweet rice in my tea cup is new for me and i don’t know what i think of it yet!

thank you very much to tao tea leaf for the sample. i always enjoy an opportunity to try.

no numbers, not yet. i’ll try another steep and see if i can come to a conclusion!

LOL moss pillow

JustJames

seriously, haven’t you had that experience with puerh? good flavour but then it turns into a fuzzy diffusion that tastes like moss?

Stephanie

Haha totally, I love the way you described it
