DESCRIPTION

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.

HOW WE LIKE IT
To brew Pu'erh Mini Tuo Cha: Remove the protective wrapper from the mini tea cake.

To brew with an infuser in a teacup/mug:
-Place one unwrapped mini tea cake in your infuser as you would do with your loose leaf tea.
-Pour over250ml of 100°C water and leave to steep for 3 minutes.
-Remove the infusion and enjoy! But don't throw away the leaves - this tea can be re-steeped multiple times (up to 5 steepings!).

There is also a practice called 'washing the leaves' which is common to perform prior to brewing Pu'erh. As soon as the kettle has boiled, this involves pouring boiling water over the tea in your mug and then pouring this away after a few seconds. This removes unwanted smaller leaf particles and facilitates further extraction in later steeps.

To brew in a gaiwan:
- Heat your gaiwan and cups with hot water
- Place an unwrapped cake into your gaiwan, then fill your gaiwan with 100°C water
- Allow the leaves to sit for maximum 5 secs before pouring away the infusion
- Refill your gaiwan with boiling water, wait about 20-25 seconds, then pour the tea through a strainer into a jug.
- Pour the tea from the jug into tea cups (ensuring uniform flavour)
- You can resteep the leaves another 4 times adding around 5-10 seconds to each infusion
- Be aware of the changing flavour with each steep and trust your instincts.
