Puerh tea (Pu-erh), also known as Polee, is a delicacy from the Yunnan province. Doctors in Kunming China reported that drinking Puerh tea helped lower cholesterol levels. Pu-erh tea, with its strong persistent aroma, is also very popular in the Cantonese community due to their slimming and other medicinal properties such as its effectiveness in getting rid of toxins in the body and helping indigestion.
Pu-erh varieties include natural and flavored 'Shou' Pu-erhs. Pu-erh leaves are actually aged and go through a natural fermentation process before the tea is gently dried. This creates a cup with zero astringency and deep, rich body.
