Eye of Heaven - Aged Menghai Ripe Puerh Mini Tuocha 2006 - 96 g.
Thick, full-bodied, nicely balanced with a brisk brassiness around the periphery of the palate, Eye of Heaven is a beautifully drinkable tea in a little package. One finds qualities of cream, squash blossom, straw, hazelnut and dark wood. The finish is smooth and the age has lent complexity to the mouthfeel. We love the balanced contrast of depth and brightness. This is the first mini tuocha we've offered, and we find it the ideal traveling companion when we don't have a full setup of teaware. The tuochas are convenient and easily brewed, requiring only one to two per tea session. They also hold up well for a nice long tea session in a zisha pot, opening slowly. We suggest brewing just shy of a rolling boil with slightly longer initial steepings 5-7 seconds.
