From Wegmans

Sweet Green Pu-erh
Origin: Xishuangbanna, Yunnan Province, China

This the individually wrapped green Pu-erh tuocha is one of the most unique teas we’ve offered to date. Made in the centuries-old “raw” method, the tea leaves underwent only a light processing before three years of aging. Just use one piece for a medium-sized teapot to enjoy a sweet infusion reminiscent of the fragrance of freshly steamed rice. An excellent drink for health according to traditional Chinese medicine.

Approx. servings
per ounce: 5-7

Brewing Instructions:
tsp: 1
Water: 212 F / 14 oz
Steeping: 1-2 minutes

(Sourced from Ito En)

According to the Wegmans’ package I purchased this is a black tea with sweet rice. It should be brewed for 4-6 minutes with a small piece in 20 oz. of water at between 200-212 degrees F.

A light puerh that has a fragrance and taste of roasted hazelnuts. A little smokey. Amber liquor. Very drinkable but without the depth of typical puerh. Since Wegmans gets some of its teas from ItoEn it’s possible that this is actually the tea listed here; although mine does not say green, it is definitely not your usual dark puerh:

I previously tried Wegmans loose-leaf ginger orange puerh and hated it, but this time I think I’ve found a puerh winner! No strong fishy taste or smell at all. Most of the nose/taste is roasted barley with slight undertones of hey and vegetal. No “sweet” taste at all. Overall, a delicious and comforting cup, but with subtle nuances that make it a delight.

I will try subsequent steeps to see how the flavors evolve.

Sweet Pu-erh Tea is a delightful tea from Yunnan Province in China. Fermented after drying and rolling, they are often (and traditionally) sold compressed bricks. The kind I got to try was a Tuocha Bowl, molded into the shape of a bowl and thought to have originated along the Tuo River trade routes. The color is similar to that of an Oolong tea but the taste is closer to that of a Green Tea. It reminded me of a very rich Genmai Cha. The type I had is a raw Pu-erh, meaning it has a sweet and earthy aftertaste from the fermentation. I would not rate this as one of my favorite teas, but it is a really unusual one
