There has been and continues to be a shortage of good quality Pu-erh, a key ingredient used in this tea.
Authentic Pu-erh is made through a unique controlled fermentation and aging process, which takes several years. Normally, drinking fresh tea is best, because it has higher antioxidant levels. However, the specialized traditional technique Pu-erh undergoes is associated with many digestive and health benefits, and results in a rich, earthy, flavour. Unfortunately, due to sudden popularity in China a few years ago, low quality counterfeit Pu-erh flooded the tea market. When Pu-erh is made properly, using ancient techniques, it is linked to many healthful properties. However, counterfeit Pu-erh is made improperly and may contain harmful microbes and also lacks the healthful properties of authentic Pu-erh. True Pu-erh undergoes several years of controlled aging after fermentation, so we have to be patient during the aging process, and wait until good quality Pu-erh is available again.
