Pu Erh - Pu Erh, Pu-Erh or Puerh is a natural and fermented tea originating in the Yunnan region of China. Its production has been going on for over 1700 years, going through a specific fermentation process performed by microorganisms. The sensory experience in consuming this tea based on Pu Erh is getting over the years, unlike most teas. Therefore, the older it is, the better its characteristics and properties will be. And this is how this tea will change its initially heavy and bitter flavour to a slightly earthy and aromatic flavour.
Like wine, the Pu Erh is consumed compact a few years after the leaves are harvested to cause a post-fermentation in a controlled manner. To transform into an aged tea with rich properties. However, it can be consumed in a younger state. Pu Erh contains a low percentage of theine and is often used for weight loss and antioxidants. The name “Pu Erh” will be directly related to the production of the leaves, which is done in Pu'er County in China. However, Pu Erh tea is also produced in Hunan, Hubei, Anhui, Sichuan, and Guangxi provinces.
Lemon – Lemon is a citrus fruit with an acidic flavour that comes from the lemon tree, a tree native to India and China. Its expansion is believed to have started more than 2500 years ago in Northeast India. Until the 10th century, the cultivation of lemon trees was restricted and only produced for ornamental purposes. From the 11th century onwards, the Arabs were responsible for its diffusion throughout Europe and Africa. It will be in the 15th century that the lemon takes on its most diverse functions in medicine, cooking and cleaning.
This fruit contains a high quantity of fibre and vitamin C, making it a potent antioxidant. Due to its vitamin component, lemon can contribute to the strengthening of the immune system, good digestion and regulation of the intestinal flora. It may contribute to the reduction of appetite, treatment of constipation and collagen production.
