Pu-erh Tea

 

Pu-erh tea is a tea beloved by connoisseurs and collectors. The best tea comes from the Yunnan province in China.

 

With a strong, earthy flavor, it tastes like no other tea on earth. It is smooth, rich, and often reminiscent of organic substances and can be an acquired taste for some tea drinkers.

 

It can be fermented naturally over many years (Green Pu-erh) or artificially fermented by manual processes (Black Pu-erh).

 

The number of years it has been stored, and the storage conditions (humid or dry) greatly affect the flavor.

 

Drinking pu-erh tea is purported to reduce blood cholesterol - this belief has been backed up by scientific studies and the discovery of specific mechanisms through which chemicals in pu-erh tea inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol.
