Premium ripe or "cooked" Pu-erh leaves have been compressed in an bird's nest or nugget shape and individually wrapped. Leaves were grown in the Cangyuan area of Yunnan Province. These 5-gram nuggets are infused with rose petals to create a wonderfully fragrant and relaxing black tea. Excellent as a relaxing hot beverage. good with food and will satisfy as a refreshing chilled drink in warmer weather. Harvested and pressed in 2018.
Each nugget steeps to a lovely, mahogany-like color. The tuo will open to yield a complex mellow flavor with a subtle touch of rose in the taste and aroma. The rose petals add a fruity note to the earthy Pu-erh.
Use one tuo or nugget for 8-16 ounces of water (if you like your Pu-erh strong, we recommend two tuos per 8-16 ounces of water). Water should be boiling temperature. Rinse the nuggets briefly, then re-infuse and steep for 3-5 minutes. These "nuggets" will yield multiple steeps.
