Tuo Cha Pu-erh
The Tuo Cha pu-erh is not really the highest grade pu-erh, but is not a low grade pu-erh either. It is earthy, like all pu-erhs I have tasted, but sometimes I detect an almost fruity note. I got the pu-erh from The London Tea Room, they have several good pu-erhs there. The Tuo Cha is a richer tea, if tea can be called rich! The Tuo Cha comes in a small tea cake or brick (whichever you want to call it) that is just the right for about sixteen ounces of water. This Pu-erh is a good tea for rainy days in my opinion because of it's richness and heartyness although is is also a delicate tea in a sense. One nice thing about this Pu-erh is that you can get a lot of infusions out of one cake. Once I got about ten infusions out of one cake, although towards the end, the pu-erh was not very flavorful. I highly recommend this tea!
