Angel's Comment:

It is an organic mini tuocha tea that yields a very unique "Cangyuan" flavor.

The fresh leaves of our organic mini tuocha were picked in spring, and once that’s done, the tea undergoes series stages of processing, such as fermentation and refining process, which almost needs 90 days until the entire process finishes. The brewed tea has a mellow and smooth taste, companied with a hint of sweet fragrance. Instead, it is in small cake shape and comes in a single-serving size that is convenient to use in the office or easy to carry on a trip. For these who like organic Pu-erh tea, this is an ideal choice for you!

Tea Garden

The tea leaves of this black tea come from the Tuanjie Dazhai tea base of about 1800 meters altitude located in Cangyuan County. It is the mild and humid climatic conditions and the mountains-surrounded geography environment that make this garden be shrouded by clouds all year round. Under the nourishment of sufficient water, the tea leaves can keep tender and fresh for a long time. Meanwhile, the plenty of rainfall can bring the better color and lustre as well as the better taste to the tea leaves.

Tea Farmer

Do you know someone who has been adhering to do one thing just because of love? Ms. Tan, the producer of TeaVivre’s Organic Yunnan Palace Ripened Pu-erh tea, has been dedicated herself to making ripened Pu-erh tea for 30 years.
When mentioned about ripened Pu-erh, the most important making process is “moisten heaping”, also named secondary fermentation. Ms. Tan said: “The fermentation conditions of Pu-erh tea are very strict. First of all, there must have a suitable workshop and environment for fermentation. Only in a good making environment, the tea will not have sour, bitter, rancid or other strange smells. In addition, to make a good Pu-erh tea it needs large-scale fermentation, and the regular moisten heaping needs at least two tons of raw Pu-erh tea. On the contrary, if the amount of tea is not enough, the contact area of tea and air is small, the humidity and temperature cannot meet the requirements, and the taste of tea will not be good as well.”
When we ask her why she can adhere making ripened Pu-erh for over 30 years, she told us that Pu-erh is her favorite tea and even is a way of life. She thinks it is good, deeply in her mind, and she wants to share it with more and more people. Since she makes tea by herself, then she will make the most authentic tea, and will let people feel the real taste of Pu-erh. Year by year, she has been making tea for 30 years by holding this simple and pure thought
