If you’re a fan of our award-winning Wild Harvest Green Pu’erh, then this is a treat that will indulge your “raw” pu’erh passion even deeper. These sheng Pu’erh cakes are made from the most ancient tree in the forest where Wild Harvest Green Pu’erh grows, in a special region of Yunnan. We were so smitten by this tree that we’ve “adopted” it, and all of the new leaves it produces in a year are harvested and made into these exclusive, single-tree cakes bearing our name. Blending the leaves from the autumn and spring seasons produces a perfectly well-balanced and mouthwatering tea using the most authentic and natural sun-dried fermenting method. The age of the tree brings a depth of character that reveals layers of minerality alongside smooth floral notes of honeysuckle with hints of orchid. These cakes are of stunning visual beauty. Ready to drink now, and even better if aged in a cool, dark place.

Drinking pu-erh tea is purported to reduce blood cholesterol. This belief has been backed up by scientific studies not only demonstrating experimental results of lowered LDL cholesterol in rats, but discovering specific mechanisms through which chemicals in Pu-erh tea inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol. [ Chi-Hua Lua, Lucy Sun Hwang "Polyphenol contents of Pu-Erh teas and their abilities to inhibit cholesterol biosynthesis in Hep G2 cell line", Food Chemistry, Vol. 111, No. 1, (Nov. 1, 2008), pp. 67-71.] Pu-erh tea has been shown to have antimutagenic and antimicrobial properties as well. [She-Ching Wu, Gow-Chin Yen, Bor-Sen Wang, Chih-Kwang Chiu, Wen-Jye Yen, Lee-Wen Chang, Pin-Der Duh, "Antimutagenic and antimicrobial activities of pu-erh tea", LWT - Food Science and Technology, Vol. 40, No. 3, (Apr. 2007), pp. 506-512.] It is also widely used in Chinese cultures to counteract the unpleasant effects of heavy alcohol consumption. In traditional Chinese medicine, the tea is used to invigorate the spleen.
