Pu Erh (Yunnan)

Yunnan Pu-erh tea is famed in China for its medicinal properties. The leaves come from the Yunnan Dayeh variety of tea tree – which is purported to be closely related to the original tea tree of pre-glacial times.  A study in Japan indicated that all tea lowered cholesterol and that pu-erh was more effective than green tea.

The taste has been described as mellow, however those not accustomed to it might not enjoy the old? character. For others though, this flavor will add to its aura of wonder and seem fitting in a tea prized for its medicinal properties. Some consumers have recommended that pu-erh be blended with chrysanthemum florets to make the taste more acceptable. In fact this blend can be ordered in tea houses in southern China and Hong Kong
This Tea is also available in our American branch  here.
