No need to measure your tea leaves or break off a tea cake for a satisfying cuppa here.
Having to ride a horse for thousands of miles along the Silk Road to trade tea was already no easy task back in the day. Tea producers knew there must’ve been a better way to transport tea than carrying hundreds of large tea cakes, so they eventually figured out a way to make the load lighter without sacrificing quality.
The answer was tuo cha.
This is a set of mini tuo cha, where each tuo cha is puer tea compressed into mini bricks. Each mini brick weighs approximately 5 grams and each box contains 18.
This puer will age as a puer normally does, but the chocolatey, woodsy taste is a compelling factor for anyone who wants to enjoy a puer without some of the hassle.
This little guy will deliver deep flavor on all on its own without you doing anything.
