Hailing from a magical-seeming country and boasting a fascinating preparation process, Pu-Erh tea is one of the most unique ways to enjoy one of mankind’s oldest hot beverages. Even the name is special: Pu-Erh comes from a trading post that was often used to barter for such products as tea in the Imperial China. The leaves for this tea are grown on trees in China’s Yunnan Province, a gorgeous rolling land covered with greenery, foothills, and mountains. Classically beautiful terraces provide rich earth in which luscious crops grow, waterways wind through misty mountains, and temples sit against cloud-draped vistas.Read More

Story, Folklore, History
The Pitta Dosha:The Pitta dosha is characterized by a medium physique, sharp mind, strong focus, competitiveness, strong appetite, good leadership abilities, and a dominant personality. Imbalance in a pitta person manifests as irritability, increases in body heat, discomfort in warm weather, excessive perspiration, and a tendency towards the premature thinning of hair. The Pitta Balance tea is meant to cool the body and calm the mind, reducing irritability and discomfort.
Nice tea. Very lemony and a beautiful red colour thanks to the hibiscus. I tend to like to leave my leaves in the tea the entire time that I drink it, but I found this tea gets too strong if I do that. Definitely leave in for a few minutes, then remove the leaves for the best flavour.
