Puerh tea is an aged, fermented, probiotic laden tea. Great for gut health, focused attention and...wait for it..hangovers! We're not sure of the science behind this but we can attest to it! The older and longer the Puerh is aged, (in the right conditions of course), the better the tea tastes and the higher value it commands. Puerh is purported to be one of the best natural cholesterol fighters on the market. This shou (expedited fermentation) Puerh was harvested in the spring of 2010 and worked for several months before being packaged in October 2010. As it continues to ferment, the flavour mellows with age. This 11 year old tea has a deep mushroom'y" flavour and can be steeped at least 4 times.
