From Yunnan Sourcing

To celebrate the Year of the Pig we created this potent little tuo cha for those who enjoy the convenience of a little single serving tea. We used lab tested (tested for 191 Pesticides) tea leaves from Xiao Hu Sai Village and Da Xue Shan tea bushes from the autumn harvest to create this potent little “tuo cha”.

At Yunnan Sourcing our aim is to improve on the tradition of which we are just a small part. These little mini tuo are composed of high quality, strong and balanced tasting, and pesticide free!

Each mini tuo is approximately 6 grams (+/- 1 gram). The wrappers are generic with no reference to Yunnan Sourcing.

This was last night’s tea for me. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I think Mengku is “my” region for raws so I wanted to try a few more in my most recent tea order to be sure. I don’t think the description mentions Mengku at all but it’s in the tags on the product page. For some reason the Mengku raws I’ve had have been easier on my stomach than raws from other areas. I also have the Golden Pig small cake so it’ll be interesting to compare the two little piggies.

This reminds me of a younger version of YS’s Buddy raw, which is also a Mengku tea. A little fruity, a little floral, a little bitter, a little sweet. It seemed a bit more astringent than Buddy and gets bitter faster if you oversteep. You know how sometimes you smell or taste something and you think “this is like [some thing]…but not”? There’s something there that reminds you of something but it’s not exact? I smelled orange blossom but spicy. I really like spicy floral scents and orange blossom. Putting the two together was unexpected but it kind of worked for me. I wasn’t able to steep this one until it lost flavor because it made me so sleepy. I think I did 5-6 steeps and it probably could have gone for several more. I’ll try to make better notes while I sip next time if I’m not as sleepy. Definitely going on my reorder list so I can keep drinking it but have at least a few of them stashed away to age a few years.

I’ve gotten sleepy from some Mengku. Took me by surprise!

Caffeine usually makes me a bit sleepy (yay, malfunctioning bodies) but this was an extra sleepy tea.
