Moonlight White Pu Erh White Tea

Be the first to review this product

From £8.00
Product code: 16289

Availability: In stock

This white tea is a 'raw' tea and can be enjoyed in this young stage or left if you have the patience for many years to ferment into 'red' or 'dark' tea, as it is variably known. Personally, I think it is best enjoyed in its light, delicate white form. It has a mellow character and leaves a sweet taste in the mouth, with a hint of the famous 'earthy' flavour Pu Erh teas are known for. Grown high up in the virgin forests of Yunnan.

Details

This white is a ‘raw’ or ‘sheng’ tea and can be enjoyed at this young stage or left if you have the patience for many years to ferment into ‘red’ tea. Personally, I think it is best enjoyed in its light, delicate white form. It has a mellow character and leaves a sweet taste in the mouth. Pu Erh leaves produce many infusions. This unusual tea takes its common name, Pu Erh, from the town near which most of it is grown. It is also known as 'Red' or 'Dark' tea in China. It is believed to speed up metabolism without raising the heart rate. Pu Erh teas grow in one of the most ancient tea growing areas and in the primaeval forest of Mt. Dahei, there is a 1700-year-old tea tree. Pu Erh is very highly regarded in China for its reputed health benefits such as lowering triglycerides and cholesterol and has also been linked in many western articles as an aid to weight loss. We have chosen a cross section from amongst the many varieties on offer. At one time the bricks of Pu Erh were used as currency. This tea is unique from other types in that it is allowed to ferment, through microbial action, rather than being oxidised. This can be speeded up by ‘cooking’ or left for years to start, ‘raw’.
