Pu-erh Tuo Cha Tea Cakes


Organic from Rishi Tea

This classic, compressed style of Pu-erh tea has a rich history stretching back centuries when tea artisans in southwestern China and Southeast Asia produced Pu-erh teas that were pressed into bricks, cakes and tuo cha ("bowl tea") shapes durable enough for transport. This tea was traded by mule caravan across the "Ancient Tea & Horse Routes" to Tibet and Mongolia, where it became integral to local food cultures as an after-meal digestif and wellness tea. Pu-erh tea became a household staple used as a form of currency to trade for horses and salt.
