Pu-erh Mini Toucha
Pu-erh Toucha (pronounced Poo-oor)is a compressed Pu-erh tea. A fully bodied and earthy flavored tea, Pu-erh is known as the healthiest of all tea. Hailing from the Yunnan province of China, this tea is unique in it’s preparation. Made from a large leaf variety of the Camilla Sinensis plant, Pu-erh is first dried, then aged. During the aging process a secondary oxidization occurs in the tea, caused by organisms and by free-radical oxidization. This process is what creates the additional health benefits in this type of tea. The longer this tea is stored, the better it becomes.
This tea is also known as the “diet tea” because of its effectiveness in getting rid of toxins in the body, and helping with indigestion. It is also said that Pu-erh tea increases the drinker’s metabolism, helping in weight loss efforts.
To brew this tea, remove the tissue wrapping on an individual pressed toucha, and place in an infuser as you would loose tea. Each toucha will make one cup of tea, and can be re-used 3-4 times each.
