Chinese Pu'erh Tea
This celebrated fermented tea is named after the beautiful city of Pu’erh in Southern Yunnan. It is called Tuocha because it is compressed into a ‘bowl-shaped cake’ and once used as currency.
Fermented and aged, it tastes of the earth, damp and woody. It is surprising light with a smooth, almost sweet aftertaste. The brew is really dark reddish brown liquor, rich and opaque.
To brew: unwrap the ‘tea cake’, steep in 100C for 3 mins
