Tasty pu-erh, though I was a bit disappointed at the strength of this tea…the steeping instructions really should read 5-6 minutes, not 3-4. But that’s just my personal opinion. Perhaps under different steeping circumstances, this would have turned out better, so I will have to try it again later (under different circumstances).
China Pu-Erh Tuocha (572)
This odd looking tea is pressed into a “Nest” shape or “Tuo.” Pu-erh is a highly revered tea type from Yunnan Province that undergoes fermentation during its production—it then can improve with age, developing nuance as a result of microbial activity. This “Shou” Pu-erh is richly earthy and velvety smooth.
