Health benefits: Pu Erh Tea is considered the most aromatic of the teas, with a spicy taste and specific smell. It undergoes light fermentation, which is interrupted when the leaves turn slightly red. Fermentation processes take place in red tea less than in black, so it contains more enzymes and polyphenols. It owes them slimming properties. Polyphenols (tannins) regulate bile secretion and facilitate digestion, and accelerate the conversion of fat into energy. And what is very important - they lower cholesterol. All varieties of tea contain a lot of minerals and microelements, as well as caffeine, polyphenols (tannins), manganese, calcium, fluorine (which is why tea protects teeth against caries), essential oils and proteins. They improve memory, normalize pressure and have diuretic properties. The infusion of Pu Erh Tea promotes digestion and removes the feeling of an overfilled stomach. Stimulates the secretion of gastric juices, thereby improving digestion. The mixture of polyphenol components contained in teas is effective against bacteria and viruses, thanks to which teas can be used both to counteract and to support the treatment of infectious diseases, e.g. influenza, colds, diarrhea or inflammation of the oral mucosa or gums.
