About 2015 Emperor's Royal Pu-erh Ripe Loose Leaf Tea
Our 2015 Emperor’s Royal Pu-erh is produced by the famous Yunnan Menghai tea factory. It is made of the most delicate leaf tips from wild big-leaf tea trees. In the old days, common people were allowed to pick leaves from these trees only after the royal household had already picked theirs, meaning that the best part of the tea tree of this Pu-erh was only available to the royal family, as a symbol of wealth and power. The reason it was so popular among the royal family was that it has outstanding health benefits, including relieving the uncomfortableness after eating a greasy meal or loosening the bowels to relieve constipation. Considering that the royal family had luxurious food every day including massive amount of meat delicacies, it is not surprising that the tea became popular!
