2015 Nuo Mi Pu-Erh

4.2 star rating 39 Reviews

We're excited to offer this Tuo-cha (bird's nest) Pu-Erh. Most of the time, we buy full cakes of pu-erhs and break them apart when we put them into the tins.  Each tin of the Nuo Mi Pu-erh contains 22 tuo-chas.  Please use 1 per cup of tea, and enjoy how the flavor develops over multiple infusions. This Pu-Erh is a Shou style. 

Shou Pu-Erh is differentiated from sheng Pu-Erh in that it is fermented before it is packaged, compressed or sold for consumption
