    Tea and pro-biotics

    Shop Now
    So tea is an anti-microbial. Do you think drinking it with yogurt or kefir might kill off the probiotics and thwart some of the point of eating those foods?

    Pu-erh tea has been linked to digestive benefits, increased nutrient absorption, increased metabolism, better cholesterol lowering ability than statins, and a range of immune-boosting properties. All of which have been attributed to probiotic bacteria as well.

    Pu-erh tea is spontaneously fermented tea leaves.

    You tell me.

    Pu-erh is really good too.
    Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.

    You think so? It's like if you took coffee and gave it even MORE earthy undertones.

    Kombucha...
    I'm pretty sure that should be evidence in itself.

    Yup, that about sums it up. I drank a lot of it last year. Mostly Numi's chocolate and emperor blends.

    I have this wonderful pu-erh cake that I've been slowly chipping away at that has been fermenting for 20 years. Well, 21 now.

    Haha, maybe I will sometime.

    It cost me over $100 for the cake but it can get 15 cups out of a few teaspoons of the stuff, so I think it'll end up being less than $0.30 - $0.40 per cup in the end. Totally worth it.

    I have a friend in SF who is friends with the folks who own this shop since childhood (yes, I get very nice gifts... it's too bad I can drink almost no tea anymore due to my high risk of kidney stones ).
    That are first generation America Chinese and they make several trips during harvest every year to select teas, and have some good Pu-Erhs as well.
