What is Pu-Erh Tea?
Pu-Erh tea comes from the leaves of the plant Camellia sinensis like all other teas. However, it goes through a unique process of oxidation and fermentation. Also, Pu-Erh is aged to get a unique flavor that no other tea has. The fermentation process that Pu-Erh goes through gives it unique health benefits including cholesterol reduction, weight loss, stress relief and more!
Pu-Erh Tea is one of the most caffeinated teas you can drink. Depending on how strong the tea is, there can be 70mg of caffeine per 8 oz of tea. The average cup of coffee can have around 100mg of caffeine.
