For many years people have appreciated the gentle pick up first thing in the morning from drinking Breakfast Tea. However, do you know that Breakfast Tea is more than just a nice companion at breakfast time?

Organic Pu Erh 1st Grade
Pu Erh tea is fermented black tea, which means it went through a microbiotic process similar to other types of fermented food (such as yogurt, kombucha, Sauerkraut) therefore Pu Erh tea also introduces healthy probiotics that may help improve blood sugar control and potentially prevent individuals from being obese through re-balancing the gut microbes.
One study suggested that these good bacteria from the fermentation process may somehow not only help to lose weight but also help lower bad cholesterol.
Pu Erh tea can be enjoyed anytime; however, for health goals such as weight loss, the best time to drink it is 1 hour after a meal.
Our Pu Erh 1st grade has been grown with organic farming methods with no chemical pesticides used in the cultivation.
