Produced in Yunnan Province, Pu-erh is a post-fermented, dark red tea, with a distinctive earthy flavour and very slightly sweet.  Aroma is somewhat intense and pungent. 

A long steep is recommended to bring out the wonderful flavour and well-proven health benefits.

Research in China and Japan has shown that drinking Pu-erh can help reduce cholesterol, cleanse the blood, aid digestion of fatty foods and assist in the elimination of excess alcohol from the bloodstream. An invaluable aid for those wishing to reduce body weight.

One heaped teaspoon per cup.  3-7 minutes 90°C water.  Multiple infusions recommended.

    Amazing Pu-erh

    Posted by Debbie Reiber-Hodgson on 27th Dec 2016

    I absolutely love this tea, such a rich full bodied taste. I use this tea to make Kombucha and it never fails to satisfy.

    An acquired taste that's worth acquiring

    Posted by Anthony on 11th Jan 2016

    Pu Erh is strange stuff. Famous for a range of alleged health benefits, it generally comes from Yunnan Province in China and has a unique, rather earthy character, thanks to a special maturation process that involves fermentation of the leaves. It typically takes 7-8 minutes to brew, and you can easily get multiple infusions. When I first tried it, I wasn't at all sure, but subsequent tastings had me well and truly hooked and I've been enjoying it for many years, especially when I've had a cold, or have been otherwise poorly, since it is a great pick-me-up. Do try it. Odd. But a real winner.

    Mysteriously good for you

    Pu-Erh tea is a subject worthy of a book all to itself. Some years are good, and some not so good. It is like a good champagne. Find your year and enjoy. This tea is good. I have obtained mine from various sources in China and I always come back to this one having some dire experiences (and expensive). Order this and enjoy.

    I haven't drunk black tea for ages, but...

    Posted by Mark on 4th Feb 2015

    I've drunk only green and white tea for many years as I love the light taste and they don't stain your teeth so much as black tea (according to my dentist :-) I bought this Pu-Erh primarily to make kombucha, but wanted to try it as a proper tea brew first. For me, this tea is amazing! I followed the instructions on the packet and could easily get 3 brews from each pot (my teapot holds 1.2 litres and has an easily removable internal filter). The second time I made it, I found that I only had to use 1 heaped teaspoon to get a first and then second brew. I love the earthy taste of this Pu-Erh; I drink all tea without milk or sugar, but have just found (it spoke to me) that it goes really well with the addition of a little rum. Experiment :-)

    My favourite tea

    Posted by Roger Casemore on 14th Oct 2014

    An excellent black tea with a smooth,slightly sweet taste. Needs no sugar at all. I get three brews as a rule and believe it helps with my diet.

    Couldn't be better

    A good tea with a lovely taste and you can get at least two 'brewings' out of each pot. This has replaced my conventional black tea cuppa in the mornings for a long time now and I wouldn't drink anything else. It has a slightly sweet taste so less sugar, if any, is needed.
