At Edible Beauty we are firm believers in taking care of the body and skin from the inside out. If you’re looking to rejuvenate your body, the best way to start is by incorporating herbal teas into your everyday routine. With so many to choose from, it can be difficult to know which will benefit you the most. So if you’re having trouble deciding which tea to try, we might have the perfect all rounder.
Pu-erh tea (pronounced poo-air) has benefits that far outweigh the average supermarket tea. For more than 1700 years, pu-erh tea has been valued in Chinese herbalism for its incredible list of benefits. From cleansing and purifying to facilitating weight loss, this herbal tea is definitely one to look out for.
Cleansing and purifying
Before being dried out and consumed, pu-erh tea goes through a natural fermentation process allowing it to create zero astringency (that dry, fuzzy or rough feeling on the palate). Instead you’ll find a deep and richly flavoured body. During this fermentation process, microorganisms are produced which are incredible for gut health. Known for their purifying properties, these microorganisms work to attack toxins in the blood, removing them from the body. When you feel healthier from the inside, you’ll start to see these changes on the outside too!
Lose weight naturally
Another reason why we love pu-erh tea, is for its natural ability to aid in the weight loss process. Helping to suppress fatty acid synthesis, it essentially blocks the body from producing more fat. The result? Your body will be able to more effectively access these stored fatty acids and use them as fuel.
Filled with the antioxidant benefits of pu-erh, our No.7 Slim Me Tea has strong cleansing properties and a beautiful earthy flavour. Coupled with white tea, your skin will see the benefits too as the breakdown of elastin and collagen is slowed. To feel refreshed each day, add 1 teaspoon per cup of boiling water and infuse for 5-8 minutes. Delicious!
