From Yunnan Sourcing

A blend of ripe pu-erh tea and noto-ginseng flower (San Qi Hua) pressed into a convenient little mini tuo (bird’s nest). The taste of the ripe pu-erh and noto-ginseng flower together is almost chocolatey in taste and aroma.

Each mini tuo is about 4.5 grams

Thanks for letting me try this one, Meowster!  Hilarious tea mishaps today.  I brewed this one like a raw on the first steep!  (Better that than to steep a raw like a ripe, I guess.)  I don’t know why I thought this was a raw.  The leaves even looked dark and ripe when I threw the tuocha in the infuser.   By the third steep, it’s so smooth that I would definitely know by now if it was a harsh, overbrewed raw puerh.  No negative qualities here, but I also wish it had a stronger flavor.  I don’t know if the gingko just seamlessly blends in with the puerh flavors, but it really did almost seem like just a ripe puerh to me with no additional ingredients.  Four pretty consistent steeps (except for that first one that was brewed like sheng.)


I tried whole panax noto-ginseng flowers recently. Very strong, pungent and sweet. Their taste would be hard to miss when blended with shou, unless there’s not much of them to begin with.


Good to know! Maybe they didn’t really include much ginseng, or it is… “aged” ginseng (these tuochas are at least a few years old by now).

Delicious tea and you get the health benefits of ginseng too. The tiny wrapped cakes are teh perfect size and break up naturally.

I bought this on a whim for the novelty of ginseng and was pleasantly surprised. I can definitely taste chocolate and the ginseng and flavor stays in the mouth for quite a while. Pretty balanced – not really sweet or bitter. My biggest complaint is that there is a fair bit of dust. It almost certainly doesn’t effect the flavor but does make this a bit messy.
