About Green Tuocha:
The Tuocha refers to a family of bowl-shaped teas. This one is made at one of the few organic puer farms in Southwestern Yunnan, China. In making the Green Tuocha, more mature leaves of the tea plant are selected in summer, sun-dried, steamed, and then shaped into small bowls. The process of shaping of the leaves has changed over the years from old-style wooden molds or hand pressing, to more mechanized and automated steps. Wrapped with paper, the Tuocha are an ideal size (3 grams) for individual serving. Pair with savory and slightly spicy foods.
Ingredients: 100% Organic Puer Tea Leaves.
