Pu'erh tea was never successfully introduced outside of China, because it's so difficult to make. Not anymore. With this mini pu'erh that comes in a chocolate bar shape, you can easily break of a piece that is exactly the right amount for steeping at least 3 teapots!
What kind of tea sets is the best for brewing Pu'erh?
Because Pu'erh tea needs to be steeped at a high temperature, Yixing tea pots are the best for steeping this tea, as of they are excellent in preserving heat. If you plan to use Yixing teapots, we recommend that you buy one pot for ripe pu'erh and another one for raw pu'erh.
Is this a Ripe or Raw Pu'erh tea?
This tea bar is a ripe Pu'erh. Both types are made from the Yunnan big leaf varietal of camellia sinensis tea plant. The difference between the types is that ripe pu'erh is post-fermented before compression into a tea brick. In constrast, raw Pu'erh is slightly fermented (or not fermentated at all) before compression.
How to store Pu'erh Tea?
The main benefit of purchasing Pu'erh is that the quality never fades away as time goes by, in contrast, the taste will only become better and better the longer you store it! This is exactly the reason why Pu'erh comes in different compressed shapes for easy storage. Make sure store the tea in a well-ventilated place with an average humidity (for real pu'erh geeks, 70% would be a good target). Don't keep the tea hermetically sealed, make sure it's in breathable packaging that is suitable for aging.
The Ultimate Weight Loss Tea
While most people believe that green tea is the ultimate weight loss tea, in China people usually drink Pu'erh to achieve their diet targets. Pu'erh tea is the most effective when consumed after meals, because it speeds up the metabolism and help you digest.
