What’s Fermented Pu’er Black Tea?
Probiotics in this tea increase the biodiversity of your gut microbiome, while black tea flavonols (prebiotics) supply nutrients to healthy bacteria. An optimal balance is created naturally, the way the universe intended.
Wild-harvested from 250-year-old tea trees living symbiotically in a primordial forest where life thrives unhindered. A natural cycle of life and death creates an environment teeming with biodiversity. The leaves of this ancient tea varietal are host to precious microbiota that ferment our Tea Crystals, turning them darker with time.
From a pristine region at the foothills of the Himalayas, we bring you humankind's most ecological and primordial superfood.

I had never heard of this tea before and thought I would give it a go. I find that I’m not suffering with bloating anymore. It also does not give me jitters. In fact I feel smooth energy. And, it taste amazing!
- RebecaVerified BuyerI recommend this productI Drink Pique For Energy, Healthy Digestion, Immune Support, Radiant SkinRated 5 out of 5 stars3 months agoSuperb tea BUT
There's everything to love about the tea itself. I strongly dislike the new box. It is just bulky. The old package had caffeine, l-theanine, polyphenols, and a suggested temperature for the hot water. That suggested temperature was also in the individual packets of tea. Why change then? Those of us who care about our health also care about the environment. Please go back to the old box - which is about half the size of the new one. Thank you

Just got the sampler pack. So far, all teas have good flavor and effects. Probiotics are the real deal!
We have answers!
Cold water will not affect the polyphenol content or the other healthful compounds found in our teas. If you'd like to enjoy our hot water dissolvable only teas as an iced tea, we recommend first dissolving it in a little bit of hot water (1oz will do) and then adding cold water and ice. That being said, studies have shown that cold beverages are not as beneficial for gut health as warm ones.
We unfortunately do not test for probiotic strains in the Pu’er Teas. Though some have been identified in Chinese literature, few to no commercial labs in the west will be able to identify them. If it helps, one analysis of several types of pu’er found 390 distinct fungal species and 629 bacterial species.(*)
Our Fermented Pu'er Tea is sourced from wild growing tea trees in a primordial forest in Yunnan Province at the foothills of the Himalayan mountain range in China.
Some probiotics in Pu'er tea indeed perish in hot water but many don’t. For example, many fungi actually require hot water to be activated. Pu’er tea has been consumed for centuries in hot water to support gut health and hot water will not damage them. It might also help to know that we recommend using water temperatures no higher than 180°F for our Pu'er Black Tea and 170°F for our Pu'er Green Tea. Any higher, and this could potentially damage their probiotics and organic benefits.
No, we have not added any probiotics to the tea. The probiotics in the tea is a result of the fermentation process. They are a mix of bacteria, fungi and microbes that are understood to be beneficial to health.
Our pu'er teas are a great addition to your health routine if you are looking to support your digestive health. However, if you are currently on any kind of additional supplementation, we would recommend you speak to your doctor. For more information on the benefits of probiotic tea, check out our blog article entitled Probiotic Tea: What Is It And Do You Need It?
They are among the tallest and oldest tea trees on the planet, and the leaves from these old trees contribute to pu’er’s special flavor. More than flavor, the vitality, and vigor of these ancient trees are the reason behind pu’er’s super high polyphenol levels – which far exceed those of green tea.
While everyone is different, we recommend giving these teas 2 weeks of consistent daily use to feel the benefits.
Both kombucha and pu'er are fermented, but in different ways that serve different purposes and have different tastes. our pu'er teas are naturally fermented by 250 year old tea trees in a symbiotic environment for organic probotics and prebiotic benefits.
I love this matcha. My skin looks flawless and I feel great when I drink this.
