My Favorite Probiotic: Pu-ehr Tea

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.

The Wikipedia entry for Pu-ehr covers the basics…
