Don't allow the petite-sized tea bag to fool you - even before I added boiling water, honey and lemon (I always add lemon and honey to my tea) I was assaulted in a very good way with an earthy scent. I am not sure if the earthiness is from the flower or the Puerh. If you Google Puerh (actually spelled
Pu-erh correctly in Chinese), you will realize the cholesterol-lowering properties are from the Puerh.
Who doesn't want their HDL levels raised? My husband would benefit from this tea. I plan to brew it early in the am. Most likely in my coffee pot or french press or my EnjoyingTea Flask (soon to be reviewed) I would add a few tea bags and steep. Cool, then blend with a spirulina powder fruit shake for his breakfast on the go. Shhh - he will never know I have added this tea goodness to his morning routine!
Puerh does contain some caffeine, although drinking Chrysanthemum Puerh Tea by www.EnjoyingTea.com would be a much lower caffeine, healthier alternative to my regular cup of Joe. Of course the Berean in me Googled 'Chrysanthemum Tea' for fun. I found a great site for health benefits of drinking this tea http://www.bewellbuzz.com/wellness-buzz/10-health-benefits-chrysanthemum-tea/.
