From Red Blossom Tea Company

A tuocha is a pu-erh tea pressed into the shape of a bird’s nest. They come in various sizes, and sometimes are pressed with other teas.

Our Green Tuocha is a small nest – enough for a single pot of tea. It is pressed with a Yunnan green tea, a heartier and richer variety of green that can be aged with the pu-erh.

The resulting tea is rich and quite strong. The usual earthiness of the pu-erh is offset by the maltiness of the aged Yunnan green.

I really just got these for everyday drinking at the office and whatnot. These are small raw green (sheng) touochas. I did a quick rinse and did my first steep at 60 seconds and the second at 2 minutes, both with around 180 F water.

These are nice and inexpensive – I got a whole bag for $6.50 which has 20 or so pieces in it (I did not count). The flavor is mellow, earthy and malty. With the shorter steep I was picking up some apple flavors but with the longer steep I got some slightly bitter flavors. They claim these are aged but I don’t know for how long, they still seem kinda young. They are of good quality as you can see the long leaves unfurl with only a bit of broken leaves. Amazing how they were able to compress all that in a little cake.

I liked this, good for every day, not as astringent and sour as some sheng tou chas I’ve had but certainly nothing as complex as their loose leaf sheng pu-erhs.
