Today I purchased a tea by Rishi called Vanilla Mint Chai.

The ingredients are:

Organic Pu-erh Tea, Organic Vanilla, Organic Peppermint, Organic Cinnamon and Organic Licorice Root.

A dream with all of my approved ingredients.

However I didn't know what this Pu-erh tea was and was afraid it was a black tea- an avoid for me.

However I found this description and turns out it's a green tea actually!

Thoughts, comments?

My friend told me it helps to lower blood sugar in diabetics...

And I found this info online from Teavana's website...so it seems to be conflicting with the fact that Wikipedia
refers to it as a green tea.

Aged for up to 15 years, this rich earthy flavored tea from the Yunnan province of China is famed for its medicinal qualities.

Pu-erh teas are typically black teas. They can be a healthy part of a complete weight loss program.

This was a quote from Kristen in 2011 and I admire her knowledge about teas:

"I would think only raw Pu-erh would classify as what we call green tea, and even then probably questionable.    The types of Pu-Erh I am familiar with are heavily fermented and aged for many years."

Quoted from wanthanee
I have information about Pu-erh or other name Pu-er tea. Please give me time.

:


Hello everyone, Great info about Pu-erh  tea  from Chloe. Thank you for that.  

I am sorry I didn’t say correctly the last time. I said, I have information about Pu-erh tea but I meant I have information about tea in general.

I read from a reliable source that tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world after water.  I like the store name “ Lupicia” They have over 100 stores throughout Japan, with locations in Taiwan, Korea, Australia and the United States.

They are:
- Fresh.  I was told that their teas are promptly cleaned, processed and packed within a few days of arrival at the production plant and all teas and ingredients are imported through Japan, where they pass strict residual pesticide testing.

-Authentic, direct from the source in tea growing regions.

So, here is what I know:

All tea comes from one. This means that whether the tea is a black tea, green tea, white tea or oolong tea, it all originated from the same CAMELLIA SINENSIS plant. The major aspect that differentiates the teas is the method it was processed. What gives each tea the basic difference in appearance is the degree of oxidization or how much oxygen the leaves absorb during processing.

Oxidization levels for tea in general:

Green Tea-     Un-oxidized (0%)
White Tea-      Lightly oxidized (10-20%)
Oolong Tea -     Semi-oxidized (20-80%)
Black Tea -     Completely oxidized (80-100%)
Puer Tea-     Fermented and aged not always oxidized

Tea that is not tea but another plant or herb that do not contain any tealeaves at all such as:
- Rooibos, is a South African bush plant or” Red tea”
-Honey Bush, is a South African bush plant
-Mate (Yerba Mate)
-Chamomile, resembling a daisy, this aromatic flower is dried and sued to flavor chamomile tea, reputed to be a soothing drink. Chamomile alone is not considered a tea but an herbal infusion or tisane and contains no caffeine.
