Yunnan Tuocha Teabag
Tuocha in a teabag? That was the question in my mind when I saw this box. I really had a 2nd and 3rd look. It was inexpensive and I bought it.
This tuocha teabag seem to suggest it was a Xiaguan production. The colorful green design seem to originate from the famous tuocha round box that housed a ripe tuocha wrapped in a Xiaguan brown paper wrapper. However, a closer look at this teabag box did not reveal the name of the tea company, just "China Yunnan Tea Branch". I suspect that this might not be a Xiaguan production. I might be wrong.
Click on the 2nd pix for a bigger view and do enjoy the 'lost in translation' humor where this black tea becomes a dark red tea after brewing. And yes, "Minimum recommended quantity : 4 cups a day".
I think I might buy another box to try the tea. I will keep an unopened one for keepsake.
