Digestive Benefits of Pu'er We all know by now that tea has many helpful attributes for both the drinker's body and mind. Pu'er has its own unique benefits, focusing mainly on digestion. Drinking Pu'er, specifically during an especially heavy or greasy meal, has proven to aid in digestive processes operating more smoothly. Because of the fermented nature of Pu'er, it contains many microorganisms. These microorganisms help to activate the healthy bacteria in your stomach. The beneficial bacteria can then do their job more efficiently, resulting in a smoother digestive experience. How is Pu'er Fermented? So, the fermentation of Pu'er is a big part of what makes it so wonderful in regards to taste as well as health benefits. But how is this fermented state actually achieved? After the Pu'er tea leaves have been dried and rolled, they are put through a process of microbial fermentation. This is known as post-fermentation because it occurs after the drying and rolling of the Pu'er tea leaves. This procedure causes the leaves to darken and gives them the Pu'er flavour that we all know and love. Unlike other non-fermented teas, which decrease in potency over time, Pu'er is able to hold its flavour for up to five decades and can actually improve with age. Order our Pu'er today and experience this delicacy for yourself. You will be glad that you tried it!
