BIRDS NEST  (2006)

Pu-er tea is known for it’s medicinal benefits rather than the unique earthy flavour.  The unique lack of astringency keeps the leaves from over-steeping and makes them ideal for long, low-maintenance infusions. Unlike green tea, the leaves are fully oxidized and stored for several months in rooms to dry naturally for long periods.  The leaves can be either bried loose or presed into cakes.  Pu-er improves with age, comparable to the fermentation process of wine.  The dark flavours continue to get richer and more complex, and some are still drinkable at 50 years old.  Known attributes of Pu-er tea include:

  • Aids in digestion.
  • Reduces blood cholesterol and lipid levels.
  • Increases metabolisim.
  • Lowers Triglycerides and cleanses the blood.
  • Used in the treatment of obesity.
  • Expells alcohol from the body.
  • Often used as s substitute for coffee by those looking to reduce their caffiene intake, due to the full bodied taste.

Records which date back as early as A.D. 476 state that Pu-er was used as a medium of currency by the nomads beyond the Great Wall of China. 

Available in an 8 Pack or 15 Pack.  Please make your selection from the side drop-down menu.
