Pu-erh Tea is believed by some to have medicinal properties, helping with high cholesterol and aiding digestion. It has a tradition of being used to promote weight loss. For some it is a slightly 'acquired taste', with a slightly dense liquor and earthy tone.

Pu-erh is a special type of tea grown only in the Yunnan Province in China. It develops its flavour through wet-fermentation and long maturity and is said to improve with age. It has been drunk by the people of the Yunnan and Tibet border provinces since the Tang Dynasty (620-907 AD).

Gold winner in the Great Taste Awards 2012, the judges described it as having a "Good Pu-erh flavour, not in the least dirty, leaves some freshness."
Pu-erh is a very dark tea with a very distinctive flavour, drunk as much for its alleged beneficial qualities as its taste.


100% Pu-Erh Tea

Packed in an environment where nuts are handled.

Brew a Perfect Cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.

Just tried my first cup following the instructions and I was pleasantly surprised by the first to last flavour of the infusion. An earthy taste, soft on the palate without any harshness to the initial tasting and a mellow aftertaste, recommend this loose tea.
