We've been looking at ways to increase our energy levels here at The Meadow and have discovered that drinking Pu erh tea could be a great way to help. It tastes smoky, earthy and sweet and contains similar healthy bacteria to those found in live yoghurt.
The act of preparing the pot and pouring the water over the tea has a real mediative quality to it which helps start the day with a sense of clarity and calmness, most of the time!
Pu Erh is said to aid weight loss, boosts the immune system and has a cleansing and detoxing effect due to the high amount of antioxidants, which have.
(Definition: Antioxidants protect cells against the effects of free radicals by preventing oxidation and so help to inhibit disease.)
To get the full benefit it's best to drink it black as antioxidants have been shown to lose their power when combined with milk.
Have a try and let us know how you get on!
