      Ripe Pu-Erh Tea: Frequently Asked Questions

      What are the benefits of ripe Pu-erh?

      Ripe Pu-erh tea is rich in antioxidants that protect heart and skin health.

      It’s is reputed to assist with digesting fat and heavy meals, making it a great support for weight loss, diabetes, or after over-indulging in rich food.

      Ripe Pu-erh is anti-inflammatory and can also assist with reducing anxiety and improving concentration.

      What is the difference between raw and ripe Pu-erh?

      Raw and ripe Pu-erh come from the same tea family (Camellia sinensis), but their processing is different.

      Ripe Pu-erh tea leaves are piled up to a metre high and covered to retain moisture. This process is called “wet piling”.

      They ferment here for a period of one to two months, depending on the tea master’s preferences.

      Raw Pu-erh is roasted and sun-dried, followed by an extensive period of fermentation, sometimes up to several years.

      Ripe Pu-erh offers a smoother brew and milder flavour than raw pu-erh.

      What is Pu-erh tea?

      Pu-erh is named after the city of Pu-erh in southeastern China’s province of Yunnan. Like champagne, only tea that comes from this region can be correctly named “pu-erh”.

      Ripe Pu-erh is a true black tea that is fermented and aged, and is said to be more mellow than the standard black tea we’re used to drinking.

      Does ripe Pu-erh have caffeine?

      Ripe Pu-erh does contain caffeine, although has less than a standard cup of black tea.

      It’s perfect for a gentle pick-me-up, but avoid drinking close to bedtime if you’re sensitive to caffeine.
