Pu-erh Tea Sample Pack
Pu-erh is considered the “champagne of the tea world”. Originating in Yunnan, China, Pu-erh tea has an ancient history of more than 2,000 years. There are two distinctive types of Pu-erh: Raw Pu-erh and Ripe Pu-erh (or, as they called in China, Sheng and Shou). After fermentation and roasting, pu-erh tea is aged, often for many years, resulting in its dark color and bold, mellow flavor.
Being fully oxidized, pu-erh tea has significant health benefits, especially for weight loss. Pu-erh is regarded as a slimming and naturally safe dieter's tea throughout southeast Asia, where it is a fundamental part of the food culture.
Pu-erh is a real energy booster and is the best substitute for coffee. Try our Raw and Ripe Pu-erhs to determine which ones suits your taste the most.
