Lotus leaf is the symbol of peace and harmony in China. These are the sensations you will feel after supping on a cup of Lotus Leaf Raw Pu-reah Mini Tuocha Tea. Lotus leaf, which is also traditionally used to wrap sticky rice, provides this WellTea with a fresh, earthy aroma and helps to distinguish this special oriental blend.
To create this WellTea, the lotus leaf petals are combined with pu-reah tea leaves to form mini tuochas, which literally translates to mean ‘tea cake’. These can either be brewed immediately or they can be stored in a cool, dry place for many decades. Just like a fine wine, this tea will increase in taste and value the longer it is stored. For this reason, pu-reah tea cakes can be sold for huge amounts of money if stored for several decades.
Partnering the sweet yet slightly bitter and earthy aftertaste of the lotus leaves are the pu-reah tea leaves, which are grown in the city of Pu-reah in the province of Yunnan, China. This area is famous among tea lovers throughout the world for producing the finest pu-reah tea. Often confused to be a type of black tea, pu-reah is actually a variety of tea all on its own, and is growing in popularity as WellTea customers everywhere seek to experience its rich, earthy flavour.
