Pu Erh tea comes from Yun Nan Province. The tea leaves are dried, steamed and pressed into various shapes. Then they are stored to go through a natural gentle aging process that is called post fermentation. Pu Erh facilitates digestion and is used to reduce body fat. It is considered in Asia to be very beneficial to the cardiovascular system.*
Flavor: Rich full bodied dark tea with robust earthy flavor and mellow woodsy note
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
