Pu erh - Bird's Nest (Chinese Tea)

Posted by Kimiko URIU on December 01, 2010 (0 Comments)

I did a tasting of a Pu erh tea today. This tea is ‎"black tea" by natural fermentation. It is always compressed & needs to age 5 years to loose it's astringency.

Taste: slightly sweet.

Aroma note: Earthy, note of liquorice.

It became a very fashionable tea due to studies that showed weight loss properties and its ability to lower cholesterol.
