Our Pu'er Shupu in the traditional shape that softly warps in your hands: it is called Tuocha, and it represents Yunnan and the diffusion of Pu'er Shupu all over China and the world.
One of its old names was 姑娘茶, Guniangcha, which means "Young girl's tea", someone says coming from its feminine shape, some others because of the softness of its body, and for the benefit that gives to women in general.
Its production has been first standardized in 1902 for Pu'er Sheng Pu, and in 1917 the shape became fixed in 8x4.5cm ca.
This Tuocha weights 100gr. and has been produced in 2016 by our trustful Menghai artisan, starting from our raw material. The Menghai area is the cradle of Shupu, due to the typical taste that tea acquires here thought fermentation, and to the skills of the local artisans, that are part of a historical production district based on tradition and professionalism.
