15 Health Benefits of Puerh Tea and Special Sale 20% Off Happy Mountain Raw Puerh (Limited Time)
What is puerh?
Puerh is an aged, fermented tea that comes from the Yunnan province in China. Puerh tea is unique because it’s made from a natural fermentation process. This process oxidizes the plant’s leaves, amplifying its antioxidant benefits.
It also contributes to the tea’s distinct flavor and aroma. Although puerh has a robust, earthy base, its profile will develop over time. That means the longer it’s stored, the more flavorful it will taste.

1. It’s antioxidant
Pu-erh tea contains antioxidants, which can help prevent damage caused by free radicals.
