Pu-erh – What makes this tea so special and healthy?
Yes, there is a life beyond camomile and fruit tea without being labelled as ‘boring’ tea drinker.
Tea is wonderfully diverse – there are so many flavours and varieties that make for delicious and interesting blends. This is especially tempting for those who like to try new flavours and have fun trying out and discover new things. Pure pleasure for the palate and so much better if the new discovery also has many positive effects.
Like Pu-erh tea.
Pu-erh – precious and unknown
Maybe you have already tried it or you know of it. Today we would like to talk about organic Pu-erh tea from Semper Tea. In Europe, also known as ´red tea´ and available in different blends. A precious and very special tea, which is said to have many healthy properties.
Production of Pu-erh tea
The benefits of this precious tea were already known in China thousands of years ago. It is used as medicine, prevents diseases and contributes to a balanced health.
Pu-erh tea comes from the Camelia sinensis plant, from which black tea, green tea, white tea, red tea and oolong tea are also obtained.
Depending on the fermentation or treatment of the tea plant, each variety has different properties. However, they all have one thing in common – they are rich in antioxidants that help fight free radicals within the body.
To produce Pu-erh, in the traditional method, the tea leaves are exposed to high temperature and moisture for several hours during fermentation. The special thing is that this tea goes through a long storage period under controlled temperature and moisture, during which it slowly ripens. Hence its characteristic and earthy taste.
