It was my first incursion into pu erh. It’s fairly mild, but the earthiness is still there, nice and smooth flavor. Great for multiple infusions, mellowing even more each time. The scent of the unbrewed leaf is a little off-putting, however once it’s brewed it’s more mild. Worth a try if you’ve never had one, but it’s defenitely not for everyone. It’s great replacement for your usual cup of coffee, and much healthier for sure.
Pu-erh 1st Grade - Organic
It has been grown with organic farming methods with no chemical pesticides used in cultivation. The aroma is distinct with an earthy undertone. The taste is lightly roasted with a prominent initial flavor and the aftertaste is faintly sweet with roasted undertones which linger.
Pu-erh tea is a great fat busting weight loss product. It is known for its ability to help digest fatty foods, increase the metabolism and reduce cholesterol levels. It also supports the immunity system, reduces suet and heals diarrhoea. Pu-erh tea is a post-fermented black tea made in the Chinese province of Yunnan. The enzymes in its leaves are not completely deactivated by the application of heat, which means that the leaves continue to ripen if they are subsequently stored in conditions of high humidity.
Some people will keep pu-erh in storage – similar to fine wines – for 60 years or longer, until it reaches the desired maturity; then it is incredibly precious. In days of yore, such exquisite teas were easily as valuable as gold and their consumption was restricted to the aristocracy exclusively.
