Puerh is known for its health benefits of lowering cholesterol, aiding digestion and facilitating weight loss. In Chinese medicine it is used to increase chi & tonify the body. Puerh is named after a trading post in Yunnan, China where the tea is traded. Puerh began with the nomadic traditions who needed a sturdy and compact tea for traveling over high mountain passes.
This unique puerh adds sticky rice sweetness to give the naturally earthy pu'erh. The sticky rice and tea are pressed into little bowls (tuochas) of tea. This is a unique earthy, yet sweet pu'erh experience.
