Curiosities of Red Tea
Red tea contains vitamins B, C and D, in addition to providing minerals such as magnesium, potassium, iodine, zinc and fluoride, also having polyphenols, theophylline, caffeine and fiber.
Pu-erh tea or red tea is originally from the Chinese province of Yunnan. It is also known as the "emperors tea" because for many years, like white tea, its consumption was prohibited to the rest of the population.
It is an unusual tea in China, being the largest producer of red or pu-erh tea in the world. Red tea, with an intense and earthy flavor, helps prevent fluid retention, is a great ally against cholesterol and weight loss, and promotes digestion. It also strengthens our immune system.
