Save 10% on Rose Tuocha December 12th.
The experience of Pu-erh is unique, to say the least, and this Tuocha is exceptionally unique. This Tuocha is a ripe Shou Pu-erh. Toucha describes the shape of the nuggets, believed to have originated from the old tea trading route of the Tuo River. These 5-gram nuggets are infused with rose petals to create a fragrant and relaxing black tea.
A rich earthy aroma meets the nose, hinting at a freshly-baked leavened loaf. The steep is sweet and savoury with a vegetal complexity. Rose petals add a floral delicacy. Faint berry notes arise within the earthy Pu-erh. The taste is reminiscent of the after math of summer storm in our West Coast Rainforest. The steep invites you to a forested patch of wild roses after a heavy rain to sit amongst wet moss, mushrooms fruiting in humus soils, and fallen rose petals.
