This is usually composed of a select grade of pu-erh compressed into a small birds’ nest shape. Its inky brown infusion is rich and sweetly-flavoured, with mineral earthiness and the characteristic musty aroma. Each mini tuo cha is individually wrapped and tightly pressed perfect for a small teapot or can be broken apart to accommodate a single serving. It offers a well-balanced marriage of oak and and sweet smokiness, with the merest hint of citrus. Like most pu-erh, one mini tuo cha can be steeped multiple times. Accompany stir-fries and red meats with this easy.
