Traditional Chinese use of herbs and teas dates back thousands of years. Recently, here in the West, people have discovered the value of this ancient practice. Tea drinkers are able to enjoy a wider variety of Chinese herbs and teas that rarely were used in the West until recent times. Different parts of plants are used, including the leaves, stems, roots, barks, seeds and flowers. Herbs are often blended together, and prepared and consumed as teas. The Chinese tradition of using herbs and teas has been passed on from generation to generation over the centuries.
Triple Leaf Tea comes from such a tradition. It is made in the U.S.A by a Chinese American family-owned business. The company owner can remember stories of his own grandfather selling herbs and teas in his village in China. Today these traditional Chinese herbs and teas are available to you.
The Pu-Erh Herbal Tea Tradition
Pu-erh long has been valued as a delicious tea with health supporting properties. Thea from the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, has been researched for helping to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. The Chinese attribute special qualities and benefits to pu-erh tea. Traditionally, this mild and smooth tasting tea was used to help support digestion. This is a type of pu-erh tea called Yunnan tuocha tea, made from an ancient variety of tea. "Tuo cha" means bowl shaped tea. It refers to the method of shaping the pu-erh tea while drying. Enjoy it hot or iced, as is, or try adding lemon and your favorite sweetener. For additional enjoyment, try any of Triple Leaf Tea's green, decaf green, white, oolong or black teas.
