Golden Pu-erh - 100g

20.00

Hint of mustiness with a bit of earthy character sometimes described as old or elemental. Compared to young pu-erh, this tea is quite mild.

Golden Pu-erh has been aged for five years in a dark cave in Yunnan Province.  This aging process in a relatively high humidity environment has mellowed the elemental character of the tea when compared to young Pu-erh (aged about 1 year)  Interestingly the taste of pu-erh becomes more mellow with age and perhaps more acceptable to the western palate. The tea is famed for its medicinal properties.  It is often taken for relief of indigestion and dysentery but has also been reported very useful in the reduction of cholesterol.  A study in Japan indicated that all tea lowered cholesterol and that pu-erh was more effective than green tea.
