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 taste is earthy and nutty and the caffeine is lower than typical black tea. 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 milder classic fermented tea is great for new Puerh drinkers because it lacks a lot of the heavy mustiness that is characteristic of some of the longer aged and more fermented cakes.
