Each province in China has a favorite tea, as does each Chinese community throughout Asia. Ours, on this island, is pu-erh, which has many health benefits, and produces a state of mental acuity.

Pu-erh teas come from Yunnan Province in southwestern China. Famed for it's medicinal values, it produces a dark liquor with a rich earthy flavor and a deep aroma.
