Why Pu-erh tea is your go-to hot beverage during Ramadan

This Ramadan, try a cup of Puerh tea – little known to the East, this fermented tea has been long valued in Chinese medicine for its vast benefits.

An ideal hot beverage for the holy month of Ramadan, it will awaken your senses after a long day of fasting, rehydrate your body and aid digestion after a heavy meal. Although caffeinated, Puerh tea is known to help control your sleep and wake cycles, meaning it will help you stay alert during taraweh and to adjust to night prayers. It also reduces stress and stabilizes your mood due to micro-organisms which increase the production of melatonin in the brain.

Well-rounded and smooth in texture, its earthy notes will remind you of a certain vintage elegance and can be balanced by a subtle sweetness. Puerh will also nicely complement dim sums, a heavy meal, an aged cheese and will leave you feeling light and energized for a night of worship.

Ramadan Kareem!
