This uses high quality organic, aged Pu-Erh as it's base. This aging process in a relatively high humidity environment has mellowed the elemental character of the tea when compared to young Pu-erh (aged about 1 year). As with wine, young pu-erh is considered the least valuable whereas pu-erh 5 years or older is more highly prized. Interestingly the taste of pu-erh becomes more mellow with age and perhaps more acceptable to the western palate. 

This tea is famed for its medicinal properties. The leaves come from the Yunnan Dayeh variety of tea tree - which is purported to be closely related to the original tea tree of pre-glacial times. During the 1200’s the troops of Kubla Khan are said to have introduced Pu-erh to the rest of China for its medicinal value. Pu-erh is often taken for relief of indigestion and dysentery but has also been reported very useful in the reduction of cholesterol. Kunming Medical College claims that pu-erh can lower cholesterol by 17 percent and triglycerides by 22 percent. They may have been slightly over zealous about the properties of pu-erh as a University in Berlin and another in France found that the claim was perhaps overstated.

A study in Japan indicated that all tea lowered cholesterol and that pu-erh was more effective than green tea. Other followers of ‘Chinese tea for health’ report that pu-erh can; “cut the grease, help digestion, promote body fluid secretion, quench the thirst, invigorate the spleen and dispel alcoholic toxins” Whether pu-erh is effective or not for the various claims that researchers and tea drinkers make, has not been firmly established; but what is certain is that pu-erh is rather unusual and has properties many other teas do not share. The method of production is: The tealeaves are picked, rolled, withered in the hot sun, after which they are steamed and pressed into cakes. (This p’uerh is broken up out of the cakes to make it easier to deal with). The steaming process generates some moisture and when compressed (without drying) into the cakes, in the course of time the tea takes on a musty and earthy character. Pu-erh that gets somewhat moldy before it naturally dries is considered the best. Pu-erh is then stored for years. As with wine, young pu-erh is considered the least valuable whereas pu-erh 5 years or older is more highly prized.

Love Love Love this tea. It is my go to day and night. Smooth blend of chocolate and coconut. If you like coconut, try adding a few extra flakes dried raw coconut (not the sweetened kind). I am not a coffee drinker, but those that are have told me this tea could get them to switch. (Posted on 9/4/2017)

I searched for a coffee replacement and nothing compared until I discovered this tea. The flavors together create a great morning ritual for me. @ cups of fresh tea (I choose not to infuse more than 1x) with a teeny bit of raw honey and I am ready to start my day. Have been drinking this tea daily for > 2 years now. I tried many other teas but noting came close to this. (Posted on 2/21/2017)

The Coconut Cacao Pu-erh tea has a unique smell / taste to it that I like but dislike at the same time. The mood has to strike me right with this tea. It has more of an earthy flavor than what I am used to. (Posted on 7/18/2016)
Tastes amazing!Review by Dollykat

I am still pretty new to tea and constantly amazed at just how flavorful it can be. I agree with the other reviewer- this flavor did remind me of a Mounds candy bar! I loved how the chocolate and coconut mixed. I am definitely curious about trying it with a touch of cream later. MMM! (Posted on 6/2/2016)
