Premium Pu-Erh Tea
Pu-erh tea is twice oxidised and then left to age beyond black tea on the processing spectrum. During the ageing process it is stored underground and can be left up to 80 years. In this sense, it is analogous to a fine aged wine or whiskey and fetches record prices depending on its maturity. Traditionally, pu-erh is stored in rather aesthetically pleasing disks or cakes, as this is how they were conveyed over long distances across the Chinese region. When infused, it is palpable from the sublime deep crimson or black colour of the cup, how unique pu-ers are in the spectrum of teas originating from pu-er city in Yunnan, China.
Pu-erh tea has a wide variety of health benefits. Some of these benefits include improvements in heart health and reductions in cholesterol levels. It is also suggested that pu-erh can contribute to help weight loss, stimulate circulation, soothe hangovers and enhance eyesight.
