Tasting Notes: rich dark chocolate
Description: A chocolate lover's tea with dark chocolate enveloped between layers of earthy pu'er tea from Yunnan province China. A rich tea that is highly caffeinated and will satisfy chocolate cravings.
If you would like a more decadent flavor, we recommend adding milk and sweetener to intensify the creamy chocolate taste. This tea also works very well iced.
What is pu'er tea? The medicinal properties present in pu'er teas are what set them apart. They're known to be powerful digestive aids, can ease stomach issues, are natural detoxifiers, may aid in weight-loss, may ease anxiety, and are said to lower both blood pressure and cholesterol.
Pu'er is an aged and fermented tea that is produced in the Yunnan province China. This ancient tea is now beloved all around the world. It was inadvertently created on the Tea Horse Road, an ancient trade route that spanned from China to Tibet. The thousand mile trade route navigated through mountains with harsh conditions. During the journey, it was found that tea leaves were altered by moisture, varying temperatures, and sunlight exposure. These natural conditions resulted in a fermentation and aging process of the tea. This process created a tea with unique taste profiles and particular health benefits. Nowadays, pu'er tea is deliberately aged and fermented to re-create the tea that was crafted while on the Tea Horse Road.
