Pu-Erh means "trouser bottom" in Chinese. According to a Chinese folk tale, the tea pickers keep the best leaves for themselves, hiding them in their pockets to take home. Pu Erh tea is highly regarded in Chinese medicine for its curative properties. It is said to lower cholesterol levels, dissolve fat, aid in digestion, improve blood circulation and reduce the effects of alcohol. This tea improves with age, owing to the specific type of fermentation that affects the tannins.
