Pu-erh is strictly speaking one of its kind. Coming from Yunnan province in China, it is a ‘post-fermented’ tea. A special woody, earthy flavour, Pu-erh yields a strong colour brew but not bitter at all. Gentle to the stomach, Pu-erh is known in Chinese medicine as a good fat cleanser after eating heavy greasy food.
Very popular in Chinese restaurants. It is often drunk with a meal in Chinese families.
Just like fine wine, it tastes better as it ages.
Ingredients: Pu-erh (post fermented tea (Camellia Sinensis)

I didn’t much care for the occasional pu-erhs I’ve tried in the past so the fact that I didn’t mind this one was a pleasant surprise. The colour is very dark and rich-looking but the taste is less full-on than others I’ve had, and woody more than earthy. It’s working well as an after dinner drink tonight and settling my stomach.
