From TeaFrog

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.

watching the Presidentail debate i decided i needed to let loose and enjoy a wonderful pot of tea. i decided on the Pu-erh because ive never had it and i am in the mood to review and do some tasting. the smell of the dry tea is supper earthy. after brewing the leafs started to loosen up and the liquor is a bright vibrant brown and smells and tastes very earthy like top soil. i first gave the Pu-erh a 15 second rinse then steeped for 2:30 minutes

Well? Did you like it at all? Hope you didn’t get a bum one. The first time I made some for my 11 year old grandson I made him one with a little sugar which brought out the caramel taste, then I added some cream and it was a puerh latte. He loved it, said it was his favorite tea ever!
