Rich earthiness, fresh Chrysanthemum, excellent cooling beverage

Premium grade, ripe Pu-erh leaf, infused with petals of Chrysanthemum flowers, are pressed into a small bird’s nest-like shape or nugget. The leaves and Chrysanthemum flowers are sun-dried, steamed and then shaped. A traditional blend and long enjoyed in Asia as a soothing and cooling beverage enjoyed during the hot summer months. Soothing, good with meals, it can also be enjoyed for its calming effect on an upset stomach. Our Tuo was made from fermented leaf from the Cangyuan area of Yunnan Province. Produced in 2019.

Tasting Notes
The rich earthiness of the fully fermented leaf is complimented by the fresh flower scent. The liquor is a lovely light, red wine color and the flavor is rich and lightly sweet. As well, it is an excellent tea for relief of a dry throat. It will steep multiple times.

Brewing Suggestions
Use one nugget or tuo cha per 8-12 ounces of water. The water should be boiling temperature. Rinse the nugget to begin to open the leaves and release flavors and aroma. Re-infuse and steep for 3-5 minutes. For a stronger up, use 2 of the nuggets. Nuggets will steep multiple times.

Skysamurai’s TTB Thank you!
Pu-erh. It is always hit or miss. Especially when flavoured. And tuo chas? Some were better, some were awful. Well, well…
Tea #8
Decided to brew it grandpa in 300 ml cup. It is actually good! Very “dark” taste, but not fishy, stinky, whatever. It was clean shu aroma.

Taste was strong as well, but on the other hand it was mellowed with floral notes from chrysanthemum. It is earthy, but so good taste. Surprising. I had such a low expectations and it is over them so much.

I like to be surprised. This tea is one of those teas.

2021 Homemade Advent Calendar Swap – Day 2
From Skysamurai.

Starting late today. Having this highly caffeinated puerh at nearly 4pm probably isn’t my best idea, but here we are. After a quick rinse, this steeped up a lovely shade of red. As my husband said, it almost looked like hibiscus. Maybe not quite that red, but it definitely turned pink once I added my requisite cream (or in this case – half & half).

My first thought when opening this little nugget is that it smells just like chamomile. So interesting! It also has that earthy puerh aroma as expected, but it’s definitely not fishy like some I’ve had. The flavor is rich and also tastes a little like paper (?). But not in a bad way, if that makes any sense at all.

Overall, I really liked this one. Adding it now to my ever-growing wishlist which, much like my TBR, will likely never be completely whittled down.
