Pu’erh Mini Tuo Cha Tea Cakes are exceptionally special because of the fermentation process they undergo.
Pu’erh tea comes from the Yunnan Province in China. The tea is lusted after and is a highly coveted variety of fermented tea. This is due to its unique and traditional long standing history. In China, the process of ageing tea, like a whisky or fine wine is just as impressive and complex, if not more so. Ageing the right tea under the right conditions will leave you with an exceptionally unique drink.
Pu’erh Tea Cakes are created by an impressive process. After the tea leaves have been dried and rolled, these are then put through oxidisation and microbial fermentation. The tea is then sold as loose leaf tea or pressed into bricks or cakes.
Our Pu’erh Mini Tuo Cha tea has an earthy yet smooth and pure flavour with a subtle sweetness. It is said to aid the digestion and is widely regarded as a purifying tea which some are convinced aids weight loss. We do not drink tea for that reason here at eteaket, but any benefits are perks to us! We think you’re going to love it.
