Properties of Pu-Erh Tea
The properties of Pu-Erh tea are numerous. To begin with, let us tell you that this tea, which is produced in China, is made from the Camellia Sinensis plant.
To elaborate on this variety, the tea leaves, specifically the green ones, go through a fermentation process.
These loose leaves are stored in barrels (usually made of bamboo) for about two years (for the normal tea variety) and as a result of this production process, the earthy flavor so characteristic of this type of tea, which is noticeable in the palate, originates from the province of Yunnan.
It is also the result of the coppery color, which varies depending on the different qualities of tea.
The longer it spends in the barrels, the longer the fermentation, and the darker the color, but the higher the quality and the better the taste. It also increases its delicious aroma.
Benefits of Pu-Erh Tea
Here are the main benefits of Pu-Erh tea. They have turned this tea into one of the favorites of our customers:
- Stimulates digestion: so it is recommended to take one in the morning so that we activate the metabolism.
- Prevents diseases: because it has a large amount of antioxidants, and because it provides vitamins and minerals that improve the immune system.
- It improves the digestion of meals: so if you take it after meals, you will reduce that feeling of heaviness or discomfort caused by some of them. It is especially recommended to digest caloric family meals, which tend to be especially copious.
- Reduces cholesterol: several studies have shown that Pu-Erh tea reduces blood fat levels and, therefore, those of cholesterol.
As you can see, one of the main benefits of red tea is that it stimulates the digestion of meals, but there are also other benefits to highlight, such as reducing fluid retention, like green tea.
