PureTea's aged Pu-erh tea is secondary-oxidation and post-fermentation tea, which is referred to as ripened, or cooked, Pu-erh tea. Each miniature compressed tea cake contains a tiny red or pink rosebud packed firmly inside the Pu-erh tea cake which lends a lovely subtle nuance of a floral tone to the earthy, musky Pu-erh tea.

Pu-erh tea can be either brewed immediately or if stored properly, it can be aged for many years, while increasing in flavor and value, much like a fine wine.  Many other teas such as green tea, white tea and flavored teas should be used shortly after purchasing, but with a good Pu-erh, you can make your tea last for months, even decades!  Usually, Pu-erh teas are classified by the year they were produced and the region they were grown and processed in, and that information is usually written on the packaging, quite like a wine vintage.  With fine Pu-erh tea, the longer it is stored and aged, as long as it is stored properly, the more complex the flavor and the more valuable the tea gets.  Aged Pu-erh teas are known for their ability to break down fats, and to help with weight loss, so they are often served in China after a heavy meal.

The tissue paper wrapped over the cake or brick can help to keep the tea dry and protect it from foreign flavor, but it is very thin and breakable. The tissue paper will wear and tear after long time's storage due to oxidization.
You can place the Pu-erh tea in sealed bag or box to keep it from air.

Pu-erh tea is named after the city of Pu-erh in the Yunnan Province of China where it was first grown and harvested and the place where it was made popular.  Although Pu-erh tea can be classified as a “dark tea” (one of the six classes of tea in China), or “black tea” in the Western world, it is actually a variety of tea by itself, such as Oolong tea or Green Tea.  You can find loose leaf Pu-erh tea as well as compressed Pu-erh bricks or Tuo Cha, meaning literally “tea cake”.  Our PureTea miniature tea cakes are one of the best ways to buy your Pu-erh as there is no need to damage a full cake or brick to enjoy your tea, and these individually wrapped, single serving tea cakes are fabulous for when you want to take your Pu-erh with you on the go!

Pu-erh Weight Loose

For centuries, Pu-erh tea has been known for it's medicinal ability to increase your metabolism which helps to break down fat in the body and to reduce levels of bad cholesterol and increase levels of good cholesterol in the body.  For this reason, Pu-erh tea is ideal for people who are looking for a healthy way to help their long term weight loss goals, when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.  Amongst the many scientific studies on Pu-erh tea, one particular study shows that Pu-erh tea also contains polyphones, which attack free radicals in the body, helping to prevent many diseases and increasing your overall health.

Where is our Puerh tea produced

This Pu-erh tea is completely manufactured and processed using the origin material in Yunnan Province, so you can be assured of the highest quality Pu-erh tea available on the market.  Our premium Pu-erh teas at PureTea are produced as they have been throughout history, in the Yunnan Province of China which has been the center of Pu-erh tea production for over 800 years.  The Yunnan Province sits directly on the border of Tibet, where the mountains provide high elevation with warm rainy summers which produce the amount of rainfall needed to grown high quality tea trees that grow the largest most flavorful tea leaves and plump, ripe buds.   This makes our Pu-erh tea the best it can possibly be for your consumption.
