Pu-erh tea info


Chinese pu-erh teaPu-erh tea belongs to one of the six main classes of Chinese tea.  It encompasses all teas that are compressed during processing.  This compression assists to facilitate a post-fermenting process – a distinguishing feature of Pu-erh teas.

The post -fermenting process assists to increase flavour and value of this tea with time. 

Whilst  typically compressed into tea cakes of various shapes and sizes (disc, brick and ball), loose leaf Pu-erh tea is also available.

The Pu-erh tea plant differs  from other tea plants, whilst still belonging to the same Camellia Sinesis family.

Pu-erh tea has come to the attention of the west as a digestion aid -  due to its ability to regulate fat metabilism ( ie the absoroption of fat).  It has been included as an element in some weight loss programes.

Read on below for more information behind these and other unique charactoristics of Pu-erh tea.
