These little, compressed cakes are an easy way to make Pu Erh. Pressed into little moulds and left to ripen for over a year, they have the typical earthy, mossy, forest-floor Pu Erh flavour that has become so popular in recent years in the West. China has enjoyed it for many centuries! They are sometimes called Bird's Nests due to their appearance.

Details

Pu Erh Gam Fei Cha, known also as 'dark' and ‘red' tea in China has recently gained a reputation as a slimming tea thanks to Victoria Beckham! This unusual tea takes its name, Pu Erh, from the town near which most of this type of tea is grown. 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 Pu Erh is very highly regarded in China for its reputed health benefits such as lowering triglycerides and cholesterol. 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’. It has a mellow character and leaves a sweet taste in the mouth. Pu Erh leaves produce many infusions.
