To build your chi a special Pu’erh, Cha Wang, 1999 King of Tea from Yunnan Province. Pu’erh is renowned for its health benefits... Studies have shown that it lowers cholesterol, aids digestion, cleanses the blood, and assists in weight loss. It is also used for increasing chi (life force) and tonifying the body. Pu’erh is named after a town in Yunnan, China. Interestingly, no tea is grown there, but is the place where most Pu’erh is distributed from. This unique tea developed from the nomadic traditions of Asia, where the tea was traded and traveled over high mountain passes on pack animals. It required a tea that could withstand extreme temperatures and would keep over long periods of time. In fact, the best Pu’erhs are now aged in caves for many years to produce their prized flavor. Pu’erh’s often have a very distinct funk that requires a bit of getting used to. After trying many Pu’erh’s, we have found one that has a very smooth and refined flavor.
To brew this unique tea, use water that has come to a full rolling boil. And, because this tea has been aged, give the leaves a thorough rinsing with hot water by pouring off the first steeping... This will cleanse off the dust and awaken the leaves. This tea can be brewed for a long time without going bitter. So the length of time you brew it will depend on how strong you like to drink it. In China and Tibet, it is often brewed “espresso” strength and then diluted with hot water throughout the day. Drink to good health and fortitude!
