Product Description


Shipping methods

Individually wrapped cakes of fine black tea from China.

'Tuo Cha' translates as 'tea cake' - not the British toasted variety, but the customary cakes of compressed tea which you'll find throughout China. We've selected our individually wrapped Tuo Cha from Hunan Province, famed for its cakes or 'bricks' of tea which have been a favourite with traders and travellers for centuries; the tightly packed leaves are an ideal way to keep the tea fresh on long journeys.

We selected this particular Hunan tea for its complex, layered flavour, produced through a skilfull process of oxidation. You'll taste all the full-bodied fruit notes of a classic Chinese tea, warmed by hints of spice and smoke - the strong, rich tones are beautifully mellowed by a drop of milk.

To brew, simply unwrap the tea cake and break it up with a little boiled water to 'wake up' the leaves. Drain the water, and infuse as usual - you'll find you need very few leaves to create a good strong brew, and one tea cake will be enough for a pot. What's more, the tea can withstand multiple infusions so the cakes should last you a long journey or two.
