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.
