Tea Basket: Flower Dragon Pearl - Raw Pu’er


These are Iceland ripe fermented Pu'er dragon pearls from the famous Iceland village. Bing Dao, translated as Iceland, is a village located halfway up Bangma Snow Mountain in China, with an altitude of 3,200 meters. The Pu'er tea from Bing Dao village is known for its superb quality, with a thicker mouthfeel and smooth, slightly sweet taste.

Packaged in giftable and reusable traditional hand-woven tea baskets.

Unlike raw Pu’er, which is more vibrant and fresh, ripe fermented Pu’er has a mellow, earthy taste and this one has an almost chocolate-like aroma, with no acidity. Each dragon pearl weighs about 8g and brews at least 5-6 cups of tea.

Pu’er is a tea from China’s Yunnan province near the Laos and Myanmar border. High in antioxidants, studies show it can fight oxidative stress, promote weight loss, and regulate blood sugar. Pu’er tea also possesses anti-cancer properties. It has a lower caffeine level, less than coffee and green tea, which make it a great choice for drinking late into the day.

Pu’er has been called China’s best-kept secret for weight loss. Animal and test-tube studies show that it can help synthesize fewer new fats while burning more stored body fat. In one animal study, pu’er was also the only variety of tea capable of raising the level of good cholesterol and lowering the level of bad cholesterol.
