The earthiness of a traditional Pu-erh Tuo Cha is captured here. As its name aptly suggests, this dark or cooked Pu-erh has real strength and depth of character.Descriptors - rich, wet forest floor, hints of a barn yard - have been heard. In any event, it makes a very good cup of Pu-erh tea. Shaped into brown nuggets, each weighing approximately 5 grams, are individually wrapped in white paper. Our Tuo Cha is organic.Each nugget is a serving and will yield multiple infusions. Never gets bitter, only stronger. Produced in 2009.
Zhengyuan Mao Cha
A highly aromatic tea that offers a surprising grassy note and a sweet aftertaste that is unusual. This tea was grown in the mountains of the Zhengyuan area, in the famous Simao prefecture, one of the highest tea producing areas in Yunnan Province. This lot is a mix of large and small leaf varietals that grow at an altitude of between 1999 and 2100 meters, thus creating the clear taste notes described herein. The tea bushes and trees that sourced this lot range in age up to 100 years and typically grow wild. Produced in 2009.

This is a rich, ripe-style, loose-leaf organic tea offering a light, earthy aroma, some nuttiness and a soft, natural sweet note. The leaves are small and tan-brown in color. It is not a deep tasting Pu-erh but has plenty of body and mouth feel. This is an excellent choice as an everyday Pu-erh. It can be brewed quite strong, with a cup color like espresso, yet it will never get bitter, just stronger. The aftertaste is smooth and clean. Produced in 2010.
