After the Rain

Zhen Kang Shou Puerh 2008
$248.00 Regular price
Size357g Cake
This tea, custom made for a friend's private collection by a Shou Puerh master craftsman, is a shockingly good Shou that immediately evokes images of leather, incense, and rain filtered through fallen leaves. The wild leaves used for the cake, which grew in the Kangcha region at an elevation of around 10,000 ft, lend it a very big and lightly creamy body with a smooth, pleasantly complex flavor of wood, earth, licorice, and lingering sweetness. This tea is a true sensory experience that lasts for many dark and rich infusions. The energy is calming, relaxing and pleasant.

Origin: Lincang, Yunnan, China

Zhen Kang county is home to some of the remotest border areas and high mountains in Yunnan.

Benefits of Puerh Tea

For thousands of years, Puerh has been the best multi-functional beverage you've never heard of.

Stress Relief

Puerh tea contains the phyto-chemicals GABA and theanine, which have been attributed to lower stress levels. These phyto-chemicals increase the production of melatonin, which can aid in better sleep and a calmer demeanor throughout the day.

Calm Energy

Thanks to the caffeine in Puerh tea, drinking a cup a day can help to increase your energy levels and focus. Every 8-ounce cup of Puerh contains about 60 to 70 milligrams of caffeine, and the naturally-occurring polyphenols in tea slow the release of caffeine in the body. (Read: No 2pm crash.) Compared to the 105 milligrams in a standard cup of coffee, this makes Puerh a good choice for people who find themselves too jittery after just one cup of coffee.

Increased Immunity

Puerh tea is high in antioxidants, vitamin C, and disease-fighting
catechins. Since Puerh is fermented, it has higher concentrations of these antioxidants than non-fermented teas, supporting your body's ability to maintain high levels of immunity and overall well-being.

Reduced Inflammation

Puerh contains high levels of polyphenols (flavonoids, catechins and theaflavin), which are not only known for their antioxidant activity, but their anti-inflammatory properties as well.

Healthy Gut Microbiome

Because Puerh is fermented, it contains probiotics that when consumed regularly, contribute to a balanced and robust gastrointestinal (GI) system. By regularly drinking Puerh tea, you can help maintain healthy flora throughout your digestive system.
