Puerh Tea - Ripe (Shou) Puerh

Regular price $29.00

100g/3.5oz: approx. 85 x 240ml/8oz-cup

Ripe Puerh is a signature tea made from a large leaf varietal grown in Yunnan Province. Only aged tea that comes from this region can be called Puerh tea.

It is the piling of leaves that starts the fermentation process which creates heat and “cooks” the leaves. This adds a highly-prized complexity and depth to the tea, different from the green variety. 

We pick the very high-quality ones. It's rich, smoky and woody. The taste will actually get better the longer you store it!

Support weight control


It boosts the breakdown of fat and blocks the formation of fat cells due to high levels of ingredients thought to be active on human fat cells.



Soothe digestion


The polyphenols in this tea increase blood flow to the intestines and help to regulate bowel movements.



Improve oral health


The phytochemicals can control bacteria and lower the acidity of saliva and dental plaque, hence improving oral health and preventing bad breath.
