Premium grade, ripe Pu-erh leaf, infused with petals of Chrysanthemum flowers, are pressed into a small bird's nest-like shape or nugget. The leaves and Chrysanthemum flowers are sun-dried, steamed and then shaped. A traditional blend and long enjoyed in Asia as a soothing and cooling beverage enjoyed during the hot summer months. Soothing, good with meals, it can also be enjoyed for its calming effect on an upset stomach. Our Tuo was made from fermented leaf from the Cangyuan area of Yunnan Province. Produced in 2019.
The rich earthiness of the fully fermented leaf is complimented by the fresh flower scent. The liquor is a lovely light, red wine color and the flavor is rich and lightly sweet. As well, it is an excellent tea for relief of a dry throat. It will steep multiple times.
Use one nugget or tuo cha per 8-12 ounces of water. The water should be boiling temperature. Rinse the nugget to begin to open the leaves and release flavors and aroma. Re-infuse and steep for 3-5 minutes. For a stronger up, use 2 of the nuggets. Nuggets will steep multiple times.
