I could devote an entire blog to my love of Pu-ehr, a fantastic fermented black tea with a full, rich flavor and "texture." I have seen come pressed into large rectangular cakes, or as small quarter-sized, tissue-wrapped domes, or sometimes loose-leaf after being unraveled from its cake. It seems thicker than other teas, almost velvety in appearance, like a strong coffee or Guinness does.
Secret weapon: Since Pu-ehr is fermented, it is a source for probiotics. How delightful is that? Its medicinal value is endless, it seems.
