Pressed yunnan pu-erh tea balls. 20 pellets - 82.5g

This  is an ancient variety of tea made from a Yunnan large leaf variety, Camelia Assamica, and is acutally a variety of Pu-erh. the pods themselves are made by taking the processed green leaves, steaming them, and then pressing them into small bowl-shaped forms. The process is quite laborious as each pod must be pressed by hand. Mini Toucha pods, age very well, in China it is not that uncommon to find processed tea in local Yunnan tea shops that has been aged for 25 years or more. When infused the tea has a mild musty character that to connoisseurs is immediately identifiable as Yunnan Pu-erh. To the unitiated this character can be surprising and remind one of the smell of fresh earth. As with many green teas, and especially pu-erh teas, mini-toucha pods can be infused multiple times.  Truly on of the Yunnan provinces most compelling brews.

Make a hot tea but also works well as an iced tea.
