Premium ripe or "cooked" Pu-erh leaves have been compressed in an bird's nest or nugget shape and individually wrapped. Leaves were grown on a farm in the Cangyuan area of Yunnan Province. These 5-gram nuggets are blended with rose petals to create a wonderfully fragrant and relaxing black tea. Excellent as a both a hot or cool beverage. Given it little flavors, this Tuo is good with food.
Tea Facts. Pu-erh was grown in Cangyuan, a mountainous area of Yunnan Province. It was harvested and pressed in 2022. Nugget is 5 grams and wrapped in white paper. Leaves are large denoting a higher quality Tuo Cha.
Tasting notes. Each nugget steeps to a lovely, mahogany-like color. The nugget opens to yield a light rose aroma. Flavor is layered and floral, with a hint of fruit.
Brewing suggestions. Use one nugget for 6-12 ounces of water (if you like your Pu-erh strong, we recommend one nugget per 6 ounces; and two nuggets per 8-12 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.
