About This Blend

A "second crop" (er shui) tea picked during the months of June and July, this Pu-erh is characterized by fat, succulent leaves which have been pressed into small, convex bowl shapes called Tou cha, and is prized for its distinct, earthy flavour. Famous as a medicinal tea, Pu-erh, a large-leafed tea from the Yunnan province, acquired its name from the market town of Pu-er where the tea was originally processed and sold. The leaves are grown high in the mountains and then labouriously carried in shoulder baskets down through the forests and into the town. They are most commonly formed into bricks or cakes and traditionally used as a form of currency.

Great tea

I got this tea to drink the first thing in the morning as part of my intermittent fasting regimen as Pu-Erh is the only tea suitable to take into empty stomach. Loved it. Then I bought from another tea boutique as an exploration hoping to determine the better one between the two. Let’s just say that I miss this tea every time I drink the new one.

Pu-Erh Tou Cha

On a whim I thought I would try this and bought the small size. This tea is described as earthy and musty, it is both those things. It says it is an aged tea and does come in little pellets. The tea is as described , it is just not for my taste (which is the reason I give it 3 stars, just do to my taste). If you are lover of adjectives used in the description I am certain you would enjoy this tea.
