For Goodness Cake
Traditionally tea cakes come in a stack of seven which is how the name Seven Sons Tea Cake came about. Seven is considered a lucky number in the Chinese culture as it symbolises abundance.
Each tea cake comprises of compressed tea, shaped into a round slab and commonly weighs 357 grams. The cakes can be divided into two categories; round tea cakes, which have hollow backs, and iron tea cakes, which are compressed even more and are as hard as iron, with nail-shaped pins at the back.
It takes Tuo
This tea looks like a pile and in the Yunnan dialect, a pile is described as a Tuo, which is how the tea gets its name. It is sized as a small dome shape which is reminiscent of a hummingbird’s nest.
Created in 1902, this dome-shaped tea features a deep hollow well and typically weighs 100 grams. The raw materials, from 20 to 30 regions in Yunnan, go into this small but potent dome, blending materials from different seasons, tea mountains, styles, textures, grades and years. This combination creates a complexity of taste that is unique to each Tuo.
Tea is so important in Chinese culture that many bring tea with them when they travel. Once tea-ficionados have found their perfect blend, they will pack some of their preferred teas to continue drinking their own tea no matter where they are.
Our mini tuos come in a smaller form for convenience, but don’t lack in flavour or health benefits. The 3 gram tuo packs the same punch as their bigger brother, the full sized tuo, and its smaller size is the perfect way to introduce a neophyte to the delights of tuo.
