1970's Cultural Revolution Tuocha
1970's Cultural Revolution Tuocha

This tea has been well kept and most likely comes from a state run factory in the height of the Cultural Revolution. The weight of these varies slightly from one to the other. The range is from the mid 80g to 100g. Please understand each varies slightly. This is a sheng (raw) tea, and the leaves are very dark when steeped with some deterioration. Many other old teas exhibit the deep dark wet color, there is no off or dank taste with this tea. This is a piece of history that reveals a far away forest taste with hints of ginseng/herbal notes. Lasts 5-10 infusions if done well and quickly. There are no original wrappers on the tuo's. The paper wrapper was added later to help preserve the integrity of each tuocha. The rice paper wrappers are stamped with a traditionally inked chop indicating "Aged Pu-erh Tuocha tea". For those that are in search of Pu-erh teas with qi, this one delivers. We recommend a full 10g per leaf set to realy unleash the depth of this historic tea.
