This traditional “raw” sheng pu’erh comes from ancient tea trees in the fertile land of Yunnan, China, known as the historical birthplace of tea. The leaves are harvested in the wild, and made into pu'erh tea using the most authentic and natural sun-dried method, producing a golden honey liquor with an effervescent astringency and sweet cleansing finish.
Using the traditional “raw” sheng pu’erh technique, this tea is grown and processed in Southwestern China, where ancient tea trees reside in fertile land which is known as the historical birthplace of tea. The leaves are harvested in the wild, and made into pu'erh tea using the most authentic and natural sun-dried method. The infusion produces a golden honey liquor, yielding a flavor with effervescent astringency and a gentle yet long-lasting and cleansing finish. This is the same type of aged tea so poetically described in the beautiful book, The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane.

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.
