With the holidays approaching, who doesn't like unwrapping things? Orzhov will be making an appearance in your December box with two Puer tuo chas and a Fuding white pearl. These are compressed teas and contain a lot of tea once steeped.
Puer Tuo Cha - This compressed tea cake is a shou or "ripened" black tea that produces a rich, dark, deep, and woody/earthy cup. Puer has a long history and is a highly prized tea. It was originally fermented and compressed to withstand long journeys. A single tuo cha can be brewed in up to 48oz. of water producing about 8 6oz. cups of tea, and be re-steeped a number of times and the flavor will change and evolve each time. They can also be broken up before brewing to brew a cup or two at a time.
Fuding White Pearl - This hand-crafted pearl made from Fujian Province white tea is a little treasure that produces a golden cup with notes of honey, melon, spring flowers, and a touch of sweetness. A single pearl can be brewed in 12oz. of water and produce two cups of tea. It can be re-steeped 1-2 times.
Each December box will contain a present surprise too, so hopefully you've been a good girl or boy this year!
