Weight: 100 grams (as 20 individually wrapped mini tuo chas) Type: Ripe Pu-erh (fermented) Grade: unknown Production area: Menghai, Xishuangbanna Prefecture, Yunnan Province
Taste characteristics: Mini tuo cha is packaged in a single serving of 5g of tea leaves. It is convenient to use in the office and easy to carry on a trip. However, most mini tuo cha are made with commercial grade materials. In order to source a decent quality mini tuo cha, we knew we needed to press our own. After sampling many of ripe Pu-erh from Master Chanís warehouse in Menghai, we carefully selected the base material for this tea. We also specified how tight we would want the mini tuo cha to be pressed so the flavor can be released quickly. This tea is rich and smooth, leaving a hint of sweetness in your mouth. If you are looking for a daily tea that is delicious and easy to brew, this tea is the perfect choice.

To brew in a gaiwan: Unwrap one mini tuo cha in a gaiwan. Pour hot water (100įC/212įF) in the gaiwan and discard the water when the mini tuo cha starts to break up (approximately 20 seconds) Pour hot water in the gaiwan again and steep to taste according to the suggested brewing time below.
To brew in a cup: Unwrap one mini tuo cha in a 6 oz. cup. Pour hot water (100įC/212įF) in a cup and discard the water when the mini tuo cha starts to break up (approximately 20 seconds). Pour hot water in the cup again and steep for 20 sec. and drink. Refill hot water when you are ready for a second cup.
