Mini Toucha Pu-Erh Tea is a raw Pu-Erh. Green tea leaves are steamed, pressed into bowl shapes by hand and wrapped individually in paper by hand. It creates a strong brew with a hint of oak. Toucha generally improves with age, ours has been aged at least 4 years. Each nest of this raw (sheng) pu-erh is approximately 5 grams and makes tea for 3. Full bodied with a hint of oak.
According to legend, the ancient Chinese believed the heavens were shaped like an upturned bowl with stars painted inside. Tea, with it's sweet earthly flavor and uplifting character came to be associated with the Earth itself. The tea makers were spiritual and began pressing the tea into the bowl shape of the heavens. The tea eventually came to signify the oneness of the universe.
