Unlike many other teas which should be consumed shortly after production, such as green and white teas, Pu-erh tea can either be brewed immediately or it can be stored and aged for many years, much like a fine wine. Most Pu-erh teas are classified by the year they were produced and the region they were grown in, much like many wine vintages. In fact, when it comes to Pu-erh tea, the longer it is stored and aged proper-ly, the more complex the flavor and the more valuable the tea gets.
Pu-erh tea has a rich and interesting history behind it. Pu-erh tea is named as such because it is grown in the city of Pu-erh in the Yunnan Province of China where it has been harvested for hundred of years, and was originally grown and discovered there. While some people think that Pu-erh tea is a type of dark tea or black tea, it is actually a type of tea in itself, much like a black tea, a green tea, or an Oolong tea. Pu-erh is a classification of tea by itself, and is available in loose leaf form, but is mainly produced in tea bricks, or tea cakes, which are compressed Pu-erh tea flakes which have been pressed into a particular shape or size. TeaVivre's Pu-erh Mini Tuo Cha tea cakes are made from premium flaked Pu-erh tea leaves which have been compressed into the shape of a small beautiful bird's nest, then individually wrapped for better storage and easy brewing.
Many people drink tea to help with weight loss, as it is a zero calorie beverage with tons of health benefits. Of all teas, Pu-erh tea is an ideal tea to assist with weight loss, because of its ability to break down fat in the body and to help you digest fatty foods. It is also said to help increase your metabolism while increasing your good cholesterol and reducing the bad cholesterol in your body. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, TeaVivre's Pu-erh tea can be wonderful for those people who are looking for long term weight loss maintenance. Many studies have shown that Pu-erh teas contain what are called “polyphones”, which attack toxins and free radicals inside the body, helping to maintain your health and prevent many diseases.

* Required Fields
I'm very glad I ordered this. The jasmine and the raw puerh complement each other quite nicely, and the convenience of this being so quick and easy to prepare makes for a special cup of tea when you might not have much time to invest in the preparation of it. I will likely order more of this to keep on hand and to share with friends.
Flowers in Puer not felt alone. And tea is excellent!
Bardzo smaczna, intensywna w smaku herbata o pięknym kolorze. Polecam na chłodne wieczory!!
I use these to blend in with other teas when I want some jasmine flavor and smell. They are also good all alone.
У чая спецефический вкус, немного на любителя. НО все равно это крутой чай!
I logged onto TeaVivre’s site before brewing this and didn’t find any brewing instructions. I brewed the first infusion of this up at 212. It was wonderful. It was light hints of Jasmine, mixed with a slight tang. The next cup I did the same and let it steep a bit longer and the cup really had a bite to it. Oops! The remaining cups I dropped the water temperature to 180. The rest of the infusions were done with this temperature. It offered some lovely tangy Jasmine. This was so nice. It wasn’t the heavy scented Jasmine that I am use to. The Jasmine really blended with the tea. I really enjoyed this one!
I made this in the Kamjove 500 mL pot sold here. It was more Gongfu style than western. The first steeps were of pleasant jasmine sweetening a nice, well-behaved sheng. Even one steep that I forgot and left for too long was still good, though a little brisk. I simply added a little hot water and had perfect tea again. Later steeps brought the Sheng flavor forward as the jasmine stepped to the background, but I noticed a rising sweetness that I really enjoyed. I will be ordering more of this and I think it is going to be a big hit with my family.
This is a nice balance between Puerh and Jasmine Tea. I was surprised with the intensity of taste, it resembles the Puerh Teas more than the Jasmine. I would suggest a slightly shorter infusion time, maybe 2 or 2 1/2 minutes. Very refreshing taste.
Really strong earthy flavor. Made a cup of tea with the western method and it packed quite a wallop. I'm eager to try again brewing it with a gaiwan.
I picked up 50g of this on the Anniversary Sale. I wish I had taken a gamble and ordered more than that, because this is really good!!! I find the jasmine scent and taste nice and strong, and the sheng sweet and clear. I am interested to see how the re-steeps will taste. I am impressed though, I love jasmine green tea and sheng makes total sense to add jasmine to. Recommended!
Reply: Thanks for your question. This tea has low caffeine (less than 10% of a cup of coffee). Hope it helps.
Reply: Four Easy Steps for Brewing Pu-erh Tea in Western Way. (One piece, one time in Gaiwan; two pieces, one time in teapot) 1. Choose the Pu-erh tea you would like to brew and place it in your teapot. 2. After rinsing the leaves once with hot water for a few seconds then discarding the water, as mentioned above to rid the tea of any impurities, add hot water to brew the leaves in. 3. Fresh spring water or purified water is the best choice, and the hotter the temperature of the water, the stronger the resulting brew will become, so you can control the resulting tea's flavor and depth. 4. Brew your Pu-erh tea for approximately 2 minutes, then serve as desired. More information you can click this link: http://www.teavivre.com/info/brew-an-enjoyable-pu-erh-tea/
