Sitting down for a cup of Ripened Rose Pu-erh Mini Tuocha Tea will lift your mood and spirits. This is due to both its calming sensations and from appreciating the love and care that goes into creating each teacake. Once placed in boiling water, the rosebuds inside is released to provide this type of WellTea with a deliciously mellow, rose tinged flavour.
Ripened Rose Pu-erh Mini Tuocha Tea comes from the tea plantations in the Yunnan province. This region is revered among WellTea’s community of steepsters due to its proud history of growing pu-erh leaves for more than 800 years. Yunnan is on the border of Tibet, and its high altitude and warm rainy seasons create the perfect conditions for growing this popular oriental tea.
Pu-erh is a variety of tea in itself, distinguished by its secondary-oxidation fermentation process and its preparation into tea cakes, which resemble small delicate birds’ nests. Pu-erh tea is also known to have the ability to break down fat, making it a popular after dinner drink in China to calm the mind and sooth the stomach, and a worthy addition to the WellTea range.
Ripened Rose Pu-erh Mini Tuocha Tea can also be compared to a fine wine, as its value and flavour grows with age. If stored in an airtight container in a darkened room, it can be stored for many decades to become a truly vintage cup of tea. However, if you’re eager to sample this tea immediately, it can be brewed the moment you receive it from WellTea to provide a smooth and non-astringent brew that also resteeps wonderfully.
