About this tea

Tea Story

Tucked into the mountains of southwest Yunnan is a forest of towering, semi-wild tea plants. The locals here have been making organic Pu-erh tea from these old-growth tea trees for many generations. The unique shape of the finished product is called Tuo Cha or “bowl tea”, achieved by traditional pile-fermenting, pressing and drying techniques.

Brewing Tips

Place one unwrapped tuo cha piece in a 12-oz. to 16-oz. teapot.
Rinse the tea with a small amount of boiling water to mellow its character, and to preheat the pot. Discard rinse water.
Steep tea covered in boiling water for 5 minutes.
Strain the leaves while pouring.
Pu-erh leaves can be steeped a second time, for a pot just as delicious as the first.
