This giant Bird's Nest or Tuocha weighs 5 kilos (11 lbs) and is called a Golden Melon due to its size. It is great for drinking (just break a little off each time) or display. It is 14 inches wide and 9 inches high. In the house or a teashop this will surely turn heads. The tea is good and quite medicinal. It brews a pale red cup typical of high quality Pu-erh. The larger Melons tend to grow a lot of yeast over time which aids digestion and metabolism. We haven't found a cup big enough for the whole thing yet. Brews more than 2000 servings! Age it yourself to yield even better tea as the years pass. Many people in China collect Pu-erh, and real aged tea can become quite sought after and expensive.
