Often enjoyed as a reputed aid to weight loss, few know that good puerh tea can also be rather delicious. Our elegantly smooth Chinese puerh is the perfect match for breezy Lemon verbena and tangerine: the rich, earthy notes are balanced out by the sweet citrus flavours, and leaves of Lemon verbena have long been considered a good digestif.
Lesser quality puerh teas tend to be rather heavy and musty, but you'll find this blend has a wonderfully clear, sweet freshness, adding a bit of a kick to the famously full-bodied brew. After all, why choose between the carrot and the stick?
Flavoured Puerh Tea
Rich and strong, with a citrus freshness
Enjoy alone and savour its complex flavour
Delicious after dessert
Add one teaspoon (around 2g) of loose leaf tea per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be enjoyed with or without milk.

I wasn't sure what the puerh tea would taste like, so have tried this and the spiced puerh. This one is much more subtle, but has a delightful mandarin taste to it - it's really nice as an afternoon tea.
The Chinese invented paper, gunpowder and the compass. But their finest innovation has to be tea, reputedly first discovered by the emperor Shen Nong in 2737 BCE. Originally prepared as a medicinal brew, tea became a drink in its own right during the Han Dynasty (206 BCE – 220 CE), and today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black, green and white tea to oolong, puerh and yellow tea. If you’re looking for a bit of teatime reading take a look at Lu Yu’s ‘Tea Classic’: first written in 780 CE, it covers everything from cultivation methods to tea etiquette…
Mandarin oranges are thought to have originated in the tropical forest of China, but their alternative name, tangerines, derives from the Moroccan coastal city of Tangier. Tangerines were first shipped to Europe from the port of Tangier in 1841, so we thought we'd give this tea the code number 41, adding a pretty scattering of orange petals as a final flourish.
Flavoured Puerh Tea
Enjoyed for centuries as an aid to digestion, pu-erh is perhaps best known in the West for its reputed health benefits. At Whittard we're all about good taste, so we've designed a deliciously rich, smooth variety for those who love a classic chai. Aromatic cloves, cardamom and warming orange make for a rather delicious digestif...More Details
Grown purely in China's Yunnan Province, pu-erh tea is specially fermented to create a dark cup with a rich, slightly earthy flavour, reputed to boost weight-loss. Some say that pu-erh is an acquired taste, but our smooth, clear-tasting style of pu-erh is substantially full-bodied without a hint of heaviness.More Details
