Da Ye Xiao Qing Tuo (Big Leaf Mini Green Tuo Cha) 2007

Da Ye Xiao Qing Tuo (Big Leaf Mini Green Tuo Cha) 2007

This tea was harvested in the spring from tea trees in the Meng Hai area. Once the tea has finished production, its leaves are sorted, steamed, and then wrapped in small, cone-shaped cotton fabric bags to be compressed into small bowl or "tuo cha" shape. The fabric is removed and the tuo cha are left to dry. Once they are dry, the producer wraps each tuo cha in paper. Because they used 3rd to 4th grade-size tea for the maocha instead of powder, you can see the leaves clearly in the finished dry tuocha. When you brew this tuocha, the leaves will be tender and yield a light honey colored infusion. The 4.5 gram size is the perfect amount to appreciate the tea's rich flavor without being too strong. This single serving size is perfect for new green puer drinkers who are learning how to measure tea.

This tea has a light aroma and rich, smooth flavor with a long finish through multiple infusions. The liquid is light and clear, and the infused leaves are the color of bamboo leaves. You can feel the sweetness of the tea in your throat after a few sips.
