There are many Tuo PuErh tea on the market, in fact the world is flooded with the stuff. So many (we would say 9 out of 10) are poorly made and have that distinctive fishy or dried squid aroma indicating mass production and poor ripening. This smell demonstrates that the wrong kinds of molds have developed and the stronger the smell the poorer the quality.

 

We have searched far and wide for Tuo tea and this one is spectacular. Produced in 1998 and aged for nearly 20 years in Yunnan. This is what a ripened Pu Erh should smell like and taste like so use this as your quality marker. Ripened Pu Erh means that the Pu Erh leaves are picked, withered and pan fired before being piled for a couple of months in a heated and moist room to accelerate the natural fermentation process giving a mature but clean flavour.

 

The smell of a large wet cavern, mineral and refreshing. Rich, clean soil and forest streams.

 

 

A WORD ABOUT OUR TEA TASTER BAGS

These taster bags are a great way to sample a tea without buying a larger pack. Each taster bag has enough tea leaves to brew a large family pot or can be split in half if you want to make an individual mug of tea. Do not forget to reinfuse your tea according to our brewing guide recommendations. This means that each taster bag will provide around 4-10 mugs depending on the tea selected.

 

 

 

Directions:

To brew cooked Pu Erh tea Western style, infuse about 2.5g (heaped teaspoon) of leaf per 300ml of 95c water for about 2 minutes. You can reinfuse up to 6 times by adding 30 seconds for every subsequent infusion.

 

To brew Pu Erh tea Gong fu style, infuse about 5g of leaf per 150m of 95c water for about 5 seconds. You can reinfuse up to 20 times by adding 10 seconds for every subsequent infusion.

 

For details on correct brewing check the Tea Brewing Chart and watch the Video Guide to Brewing Tea.
