Pu erh belongs to a post-fermented tea, and sometimes classified as a dark tea (dark tea is one of the six classes of tea in China).  Interestingly in China, there is some debate about whether Pu'erh actually is a “tea”, due to it having a completely distinct aging process.  We of course tend to side by the argument that its made from tea leaves, and brewed in water – so its a tea!

There are various types of Pu'erh that are distinguished from their packaging (whether loose leaf or in various compacted block forms).  Generally loose leaf Pu'erh, like PureTea's, is regarded as having the best taste and aroma, that is stimulating to drink and will last for 9 infusions by using Gaiwan 3oz.


Brief Health Info

Pu-erh tea has been touted for many years as a great weight loss tea because of its ability to help us burn fat and shed pounds, as well as having a deliciously mellow and deeply earthy flavor.

Pu erh has a mild, gentle nature to it, and so is great to drink if you have a delicate stomach or trouble drinking other teas.  People in south western China usually drink this tea during meals, to help with digestion.
Of course, like the health benefits of all tea , it contains antioxidants!
