Imperial Pu-erh is
named after the region where it was first
harvested. There is a small town in the Yunnan
province called Pu-erh, and trade in this type
of tea was very heavy there. They harvest the
tea from a broad-leaved variety of tea, that is
supposedly a very ancient strain of tea.
Drinking Pu-erh tea can help reduce cholesterol,
according to scientific studies. By helping
digestion (particularly of fatty foods), Pu-erh
is the perfect tea after a heavy meal.
Pu-erh tea is
traditionally made with leaves from old wild tea
trees of a variety known as "broad leaf tea",
which is found in southwest China Yunnan. Pu-erh
is well known for mellower flavour
characteristics.This tea has an effect against
the indigestion, the excess of weight, and a too
high cholesterol level.
