Unlike many other teas which should be consumed shortly after production, such as green and white teas, Pu-erh tea can either be brewed immediately or it can be stored and aged for many years, much like a fine wine. Most Pu-erh teas are classified by the year they were produced and the region they were grown in, much like many wine vintages. In fact, when it comes to Pu-erh tea, the longer it is stored and aged proper-ly, the more complex the flavor and the more valuable the tea gets.
Pu-erh tea has a rich and interesting history behind it. Pu-erh tea is named as such because it is grown in the city of Pu-erh in the Yunnan Province of China where it has been harvested for hundred of years, and was originally grown and discovered there. While some people think that Pu-erh tea is a type of dark tea or black tea, it is actually a type of tea in itself, much like a black tea, a green tea, or an Oolong tea. Pu-erh is a classification of tea by itself, and is available in loose leaf form, but is mainly produced in tea bricks, or tea cakes, which are compressed Pu-erh tea flakes which have been pressed into a particular shape or size. TeaVivre's Pu-erh Mini Tuo Cha tea cakes are made from premium flaked Pu-erh tea leaves which have been compressed into the shape of a small beautiful bird's nest, then individually wrapped for better storage and easy brewing.
Many people drink tea to help with weight loss, as it is a zero calorie beverage with tons of health benefits. Of all teas, Pu-erh tea is an ideal tea to assist with weight loss, because of its ability to break down fat in the body and to help you digest fatty foods. It is also said to help increase your metabolism while increasing your good cholesterol and reducing the bad cholesterol in your body. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, TeaVivre's Pu-erh tea can be wonderful for those people who are looking for long term weight loss maintenance. Many studies have shown that Pu-erh teas contain what are called “polyphones”, which attack toxins and free radicals inside the body, helping to maintain your health and prevent many diseases.

You're reviewing: Lotus Leaf Raw Pu-erh Mini Tuocha
* Required Fields
Another lovely tuocha. I steeped in a gaiwan, water at 212F, and tried the following formula with great results: rinse (10s)/15s/20s/25s/30s/35s/etc. I found the taste to be even each time. When I reached 1 min of infusion time, I started to increase my steeping time at 20s increments. At this point, I was just trying to see if this tea would give up some spicy notes (like the ancient tree dragon ball raw pu-erh did). I did not find any. For me, this tea was even from start to finish. I got 14 infusions out of it.
Отличный чай! Все время такой покупаю. Тонкий и изысканный аромат.
Hmm, I wasn’t sure what to expect here. I don’t have much experience with lotus. The first sip I was convinced I hated it. But as I continued to drink it it grew on me. The lotus adds a savory element that I found disconcerting at first. It seems a tiny bit like a rice scented puerh with a hint of mushrooms or something. Now that I have embraced its savory flavor its kind of nice. I’m not getting a lot out of the sheng specifically though. Anyway, definitely interesting and glad I got to try it!
The aroma of this little tuo is not very strong, with faint notes of wet hay, sweet freshly mown hay, a bit of yeasty bread, a touch of mineral, and salty lotus leaf. Specifically the lotus notes remind me of the lotus wrapped sticky rice (or lo mai gai) that I love so much when going out for dim sum. Delicious! The first steep is nice and mild, it has a thick mouthfeel with a slightly salty almost broth like taste. This transitions to fresh hay and spinach with a slight sourness. The finish is like a distant breeze bringing in a field of flowers.
