The leaves for Tuo Cha are pressed in small “bowls” and individually wrapped. One Tuo Cha weighs approximate 5 grams, the perfect amount for two cups. The tea can be stored, and will mature, over long periods of time. In addition, it is very easy to brew, for it does not develop any harshness or astringency even if infused for hours. While Pu-erh is certainly not everyone’s favorite, this Tuo Cha has quickly developed a solid following. A convenient method of preparing this tea is to put 2 – 4 Tuo Chas in a thermos and fill it with boiling water.

It can be enjoyed during the day without seperating the infused leaves. Brewed strongly, it can be served as a healthy and hearty starter for the day; prepared lighter, it can be enjoyed as an evening tea.

Recommendations: Use 1 piece per 3 six oz. cups (according to taste);heat fresh water to a roaring boil; let steep for 5 to 10 min. Try with some milk.
