Pu-erh teas are aged teas known for their health enhancing properties. It functions to relieve hotness and thirst, improve appetite and digestion, promote weight loss, reduce blood pressure, and cholesterol and is a blood purifier. The ageing process (traditionally in caves, now in specially designed “caves” or climate controlled rooms), bring out the full body and melow richness; tanins and caffiene are further reduced.
Tea fermentation occurs in two ways: Black, “cooked” or "finished" tea is called Shu (can be readily consumed) and Green or "raw" tea is called Sheng & is not oxidized (and may require additional ageing), but it is said that the natural aging process produces probiotics, and good bacteria.
From the high mountain tea plantations of Yunan come these "beenchas" or cakes that undergo numerous precise steps and controlled temperatures to ensure that fermentation brings out the best Pu-erh tea. Choose from White and Green beencha.
