Pu’er is a type of fermented tea produced in Yunnan province, China. The city of Pu’er is named after the tea. Pu’er Tea comes in two varieties: Green (Sheng) and Black (Shou), depending on how the leaves are processed. The best known variety of this category of tea is pu’er from Yunnan Province, named after the trading post for dark tea during imperial China. Pu-erh tea (pronounced ‘poo-air’) contains high levels of polyphenols (flavonoids, catechins and theaflavin), which are known for their antioxidant activity. These powerful chemicals speed up fat burning as well as reduce stress and heavy metal consumption due to the cell repair compounds found within.
