Angel's Comment:

By adding lotus leaf, this raw puerh tea is good for clearing heat as well as calming your mind.

This Raw Pu-erh Mini Tuocha is made from Pu-erh leaf compressing with Lotus leaf to produce these gorgeous miniature Pu-erh tea cakes. Each mini tuocha is individually wrapped for convenient use and storage that will make your Pu-erh tea last much longer.

Lotus leaves are also used as a popular ingredient in Chinese cooking (especially Cantonese cuisine). Dim sum chefs use them to wrap the rice for steaming, as the leaves give out a delicate aroma and color to the grains.

It is also famous for being the hometown of Yunnan black tea. Fengqing has a long history of planting, producing, and drinking tea, and contains a beautiful throng of mountains webbed with rivers.

Tea Bush

Yunnan large-leaf is a rare variety of tea bush, and one of the kinds best-suited to making pu-erh tea. Yunnan has a unique geographic advantage, with plenty of rainfall and proper temperature for growing large-leaf varieties. The leaves from this variety are abundant in polyphenols, catechins, amino acids, and caffeine.

History

Pu-erh tea is one of the oldest types of Chinese tea, with a history stretching back over 1,700 years to the Eastern Han Dynasty, when the tea was called Jing Cha. It is named after the town of Pu’er in Yunnan province, which was the earliest trading center for this tea. In its early history pu-erh was used as a bartering currency throughout southwest China, and there the famed Cha Ma Gu Dao - or Tea Horse Road - was built especially to transport this tea through the Himalayas to other countries and areas in Tibet.
