Pu-Erh Tea


Pu-erh (pronounced POO-air) tea comes in loose-leaf and compressed varieties. The loose-leaf varieties tend to have more mild flavors while the compressed versions have dense, smoky tastes. Pu-erh leaves grow predominantly in the Yunnan Province of China. Known for aiding in digestion, this tea has a mild finish and an amber color. You can buy both black and green varieties of this fermented blend.

Chinese Pu-erh contains high levels of flavonoid antioxidants. The high concentration is said to provide health benefits to the spleen and may help purify the blood of toxins like alcohol. Many dieters buy this blend because of its ability to cut the fat content in food and stimulate the metabolism.

A Mild Alternative to Your Daily Cup of Coffee

If you're planning to switch from coffee to tea, Pu-erh has a smooth taste and contains less caffeine than black teas. If you're tired of feeling jittery at work, drinking Pu-erh will give you the mental stimulation of coffee without the anxiety or the wicked afternoon crash. If you want a strong brew, steep loose leaves or compressed cakes for up to 15 minutes. If you're making iced tea, you'll want to let it brew for up to 30 minutes, and then pour it over ice and store it in the refrigerator.

The Tea Farm is an online service that provides compressed Pu-erh cakes and loose-leaf blends from China. If you're looking for a hint of sweetness, check out the rose-infused, loose-leaf blends in the online store.
