From Remedy Teas

Pure cooked “shou tuocha” pu-erh from Yunnan China. These wee little bowls of compressed tea have full-bodied earthy flavor. Little nuggets of pu-erh goodness can be infused many times revealing smooth mellow flavor. While these little bowls are cute as a button they deliver dark bold flavor with deep earthiness like no other.

This is what gives pu-erh a bad name. I bought these really not expecting much but more a a gimic gift for some friends that I am trying to convert to tea. And they suceeded in being just that, a gimic. This is a perfect example of what many mini toucha’s are, dust that has been sweep up off the floor. These are shu so you can’t screw them up as easily as a sheng but still.

They are fun to introduce new people to tea but other than that really not worth your time.

205F. 1gram tea per 30ml. start with 15 sec infusions.

I’m sorry, but why would you use a bad tea to introduce someone to tea? I wouldn’t think that would convert them into a happy tea drinker…

The Seattle Tea Snob

Ah ha a well deserved question my friend, so I perhaps should qualify that somewhat of what I had in mind was directed towards the friends whom I was sharing this with, but I believe much of it applies to the masses. Most tea drinkers are familiar with tea bags and even loose leaf is a novelty to them. And most tea drinkers are familiar with flavored teas and black blends that taste rather generic and bland. Shou, even the cheap crappy stuff, has a very unique and strong flavor, that is especially true in regards to the cheap crappy stuff. Therefore it is a completely new flavor range for them to try, hopefully they will become intrigued and be interested in trying others.

And the even simpler reason is they are miniature compressed tea bowls which your average joe/jane has never seen so again a fun novelty which shows them there is much more to the teaverse then they had imagined, and again will hopefully want to try more stuff.

Also there are people that genuinely like these and don’t like higher quality pu, therefore its not like I am giving them dog food, just tea that I don’t choose to drink for myself.

Now this is the kind of pu-erh I love.

The taste of this tea is composed of a really complex web of earthy flavors. It reminds me of being in the forest after is rains. It’s always tough to unravel the flavors, but I get a peat-iness, a weakly smokiness, and a underlying thread of umami.

It brews up to this rich maroon color. I’ve basically been tossing the first infusion that I steep for maybe 30 seconds. Then I usually have 3 good steeps left that I do for 2 min, 4 min, and 6 min respectively.
