Puer tea

Puer tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. This is the same plant that is used for making green, oolong, and black teas.

Though the same source plant is used, the different teas are made by using different processes. Green tea is not fermented, oolong tea is partially fermented, black tea is fully fermented, and Pu-erh tea is post-fermented. This means Pu-erh tea’s processing includes both fermentation and then prolonged storage, or “aging,” under high humidity. Pu-erh tea that is aged for a longer period of time is supposed to taste better.

Pu-erh tea is produced mainly in the Yunnan district in the southwestern part of China. Pu-erh tea is used as medicine in China

Pu-erh tea is used for improving mental alertness and sharp thinking. It is also used for reducing high cholesterol.

There is interest in using pu-erh tea for lowering cholesterol because, unlike other teas, it contains small amounts of a chemical called lovastatin.Lovastatin is a prescription medicine used for lowering cholesterol. Investigators think that bacteria that sometimes contaminate pu-erh tea may somehow make the lovastatin in the course of their normal life cycle.
