Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz #VeganMoFo2016

Vegan MoFo is pimping Monochrome Meals today which means we will be seeing a lot of food that is all based around ONE color so for our Vegan MoFo Tea choice today we are pushing Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz.

This Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz is part of the Teasenz Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix.  If you purchase the 70 gram TIN for $10.89 you will receive 12 or 13 mini tuo cha.  I think this is a pretty fair price for 12 or 13 mini’s of which you get to try 4 of their pu-erhs!

We are specifically reviewing the Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz in this review.  The scent of this one once wet and infused is an earthy, woodsy, wormy type.  It infuses to a dark brown.  I was pleasantly surprised that the taste on the tongue was mellower than I thought it would be based on the scent of the infusion.  It was really quite nice.  Sure it had woodsy notes but they weren’t over the top or anything I winced at.  Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz was even a bit smooth, too!  I’m not saying this Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz was dull or lacking in flavor at all!  It’s just more smooth than I thought it would be based on the scent!  I’m very excited about this offering!

Because Mini Yunnan Tuocha Mix – Brown Wrapper – from Teasenz is a solid brown color DRY and WET I figured it would make a nice connection to the Vegan MoFo Monochrome theme of the day, today!

  • Brown: Start off with the flat tuocha wrapped in brown paper to experience the classic taste of pu erh tea. Note: Don’t underestimate those small tuocha teas. One piece can easily steep you several pots of tea. Instead of moving too fast from one color to the other, first strive to get as many steeps from each piece!
