In traditional Chinese medicine, pu-erh tea is considered to free the meridians, ‘warming the middle burner’ (stomach & spleen) and be beneficial to ‘blood cleansing’, digestion and detox. For these reasons, it is often consumed after heavy meals or consumed as a hangover aid.
Studies have revealed that pu-erh may lower cholesterol, blood pressure and increase metabolism. Pu-erh is occasionally known as a ‘diet tea,’ but like all teas, we don’t recommend consuming it as a miraculous weight loss supplement, but rather as an enjoyable part of a healthy diet.

Scoop approximately 1-2 grams of the loose tea per pot (500-1000 milliliters) of hot water and steep for 3–10 minutes. The longer the steep, the stronger the taste.
Contains caffeine (approx: 60-70 mg per cup). It’s not recommended to consume pu-erh close to bedtime. Drinking large amounts might cause unwanted black tea side effects due to the caffeine content, including headache, nervousness, sleep problems, vomiting, diarrhea, irritability, irregular heartbeat, tremor and heartburn.
