The Incredible Health Benefits of Pu-erh Tea

Posted by Anna Mitsios on

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!

Sip Yourself Slim With Edible Beauty Tea

Posted by Anna Mitsios on

When it comes to detoxifying, removing excess fluid and trimming down, using natural herbs is one of the most effective and therapeutic ways to get the results you desire. Three of my favourite products for slimming down include No.1 Green Goddess Detox Tea, No. 6 Puff Away Tea & No. 7 Slim Me tea. In … Continue reading

No. 1 Green Goddess Detox Tea

Our Green Goddess blend is our bestselling Beauty Tea at Edible Beauty. There are two reasons why. Firstly, it is wonderfully therapeutic and medicinal, but secondly it tastes light and refreshing. We have brought in the big guns when it comes to detoxifying with Schizandra Berry, St Mary’s Thistle and Dandelion Root. The medicinal action of these herbs lies in their ability to heal and regenerate the liver and to assist the liver in clearing toxins from the body. Interestingly, St Mary’s Thistle has been clinically shown to assist in the management of Type 2 diabetes. These herbs are often promoted as “hang-over” cures and anecdotally I have seen them as being effective in hastening recovery from a few too many margaritas.

In their traditional preparation the liver loving herbs in this blend are often bitter. However rest assured, we have artfully combined them with lemongrass, ginger and calendula which make this tea a delight to drink either hot or iced with a squeeze of lemon and lime. Aim to have three cups daily for a period of two weeks for maximum therapeutic action.

No. 6 Puff Away Tea

Puff Away is a kidney cleansing tea which has a wonderful diuretic action. The synergistic blend of the herbs in this blend work to reduce water retention, puffiness and revive tired eyes and skin. This blend is particularly unique due to the addition of an Amazonian herb named Guayusa. Guayusa is rich in nutrients including theobromine, a compound which reduces inflammation and blood pressure while also acting as a diuretic. Guayusa has traditionally been used to detoxify the blood, improve the function of the kidneys and urinary tract, and improve digestion and elimination. Dandelion leaves, Nettle and Juniper Berries, which are also found in the tea blend, act as diuretics, flushing the kidneys and assisting in accelerating their filtration activity. This tea has an uplifting spearmint flavor which makes it easy to have about two to three cups daily for maximum therapeutic action. Have this tea during the day so your sleep is not disturbed with visits to the bathroom.

No. 7 Slim Me Tea

One of most beautiful tea blends, No. 7 Slim Me is the most popular amongst our female body builder customers who love to use this blend in the lead up to competitions. It contains the very special Pu-erh tea. This tea has been used for more than 1,700 years in China.

Pu-erh is renowned for its special ability to assist in weight loss and fat burning. It works to boost the metabolism, improve digestion and reduce fat absorption. Drinking this tea an hour after meals is the most effective way to improve fat digestion and reduce fat absorption. This teas is more effective than standard black tea due to the method of its preparation.

Pu-erh tea is fermented similarly to oolong tea and then goes through an additional process called post-fermentation. After the tea is fermented, the leaves are sun-dried, and aged in a high humidity environment. This fermentation process increases the potency of the actives in the tea, enhancing its therapeutic benefits.

As an added benefit, this tea works to improve mental alertness and to stimulate blood flow to the central nervous system. This tea is very easy to drink with a deliciously mellow and earthy flavour.
