125g Loose Leaf Tea
Like a fine wine, Pu erh Tea gets better with age. It is the product of a unique processing method whereby the oxidised leaves undergo piling and heaping, which ultimately prolongs fermentation. The purpose of this is to manipulate conditions to simulate a natural ageing process, resulting in a Tea with a highly-prized complexity, depth and smoothness.
Similar to Champagne from the Champagne region of France or Darjeeling Tea from the Darjeeling district of India, Pu erh grows exclusively in Yunnan province, China.
This ensures its authenticity, as well as its quality and consistency. Our Pu erh, in particular, offers a sweet, mellow taste. It also, according to the latest scientific research, comes with Pu erh Tea Benefits.
A Chinese study conducted at Kunming Medical College suggests that Pu erh Tea could lower “bad” LDL cholesterol. It saw 86 participants with unusually high levels of blood cholesterol split into two groups.
The first group of 55 volunteers drank this beverage three times daily. In contrast, the second group received an unnamed cholesterol-lowering drug.
The results showed a 64.29% reduction in “bad” LDL cholesterol in the Tea-drinking group. The drug group, meanwhile, had only a minimal improvement at 66.67%.
While the cholesterol-lowering drug was proven to be more effective, the research also established that Pu erh could at least help.
