Product Details

Pu-erh is an ancient medicinal tea from China's Yunnan Province. Soldiers of Kublai Khan's army carried it throughout China in the 13th century. Pu-erh is made from the dayeh or large leaf variety of the tea plant, following a centuries old secret processing method. The broad leaves are allowed to partially ferment, giving the tea its unique earthy flavor and deep, rich color.

In 1690, Japan was ruled by the Tokugawa Shogunate, the Manchus had repelled the Mongols, Louis XIV ruled in splendor from his new palace in Versailles, Czar Peter had just attained the throne and Johann Sebastian Bach was five years old. And that same year in Japan, the Yamamoto family began producing premium teas, a tradition that continues to this day. More than three centuries of experience go into the selection and processing of Yamamotoyama Teas, among the finest in the world.

Pu-erh Tea
December 13, 2012
Reviewer:  Elaine W. 

 - See all my reviews

Dr.Oz had a show on the weight loss benefits of tea. He had this tea called Pu-erh that is suppose to be good for weight loss. Well it is sooo!! delicious! Finally the Stash tea company carries the tea under the YAMAMOTO Pu-erh tea. It's smooth, delicious, and earthy! You need to brew it in a pot, it's loose. All you do is put some tea in a pot, bring to a boil and put in a tea strainer(a nice tea pot enhances the experience) and E-N-J-O-Y!!!!
