  • Improves cholesterol, healthy probiotics, promote weight loss, aid with digestion 

1993 was one of the great vintages for Pu-erh. Tuo Cha from the ancient trees in Xiaguan, Yunnan is well-known for its top quality. This cellared and aged Tuo Cha has ultra-high enzyme properties which is best known to aid with digestion and lower cholesterol. Each ‘Tuo Cha’ (hunch shape tea cake) is pressed and individually wrapped in rice paper.

Once brewing commences, the quality of the full leaves unfurls. This is very different from most Tuo Cha produced in the late 2000’s whereby the leaves are more in a powdery form.

The quality of leaves and the great care taken in the dried storage process contributes to its full-bodied and earthy flavour with a light date aroma.  By the 3rdinfusion, it releases a lingering richness of woodiness.  

Excellent to enjoy anytime for its flavour and health benefits.
