Lightload Puer Tea is the tea that fits in your wallet. It's compressed to make travel and storage easier. The process also allows the tea to last longer over time. We have a wonderfully tasting high quality tea leaf.
Lightload tea is a dark ripe fermented Pu er grown in the high mountains of Puer Prefecture in China, the oldest tea producing region in the world. Our Gift Box consists of 6 inner boxes of five 5-gram (.17oz) tea bricks neatly compressed and stacked, ready to savor. The bricks are wrapped in a locally grown high quality paper that helps to enrich the breathability of the tea, preserve its freshness, and encourage the continued fermentation of the tea microorganisms. The tea itself is a black tea that's post fermented and continues to grow in flavor over time. It lasts indefinitely on the shelf, unlike the other teas like Oolong, Green and White that do have a shelf life. Each 5-gram (.17oz) brick makes up to a gallon of tea.
Rinse the tea brick to get the natural smells emboldened, then break off a piece or put the whole piece in boiling water steep for a few minutes and then drink either hot or cold. The tea is known to help in weight loss, high cholesterol, digestion, sugar blood glucose and poisons.
