Description

Often referred to as a post-fermented tea, Pu Erh is named after the town in which it was produced in China’s Yunnan Province. This is wild and purely organic, grown only in mountains . The leaves come from Ancient tree . The tea contains micro-organisms, with probiotic properties, which aid digestion and promote a healthy immune system, so is commonly consumed to aid weight loss. After tea leaves are processed , they are steamed and pressed into cakes and aged for several years before they are sold.
There are two kinds of Pu Erh: Sheng ( Raw ) , which is allowed to develop and age naturally, and Shou ( Ripe ), which undergoes an accelerated fermentation process. Post-fermented aged tea, particularly Pu Erh, is highly sought-after by connoisseurs who store and age it for decades, as the flavours ( which vary from earthy, musty, and leathery, to chocolatey or woody )become more complex over time..
