Another Fermented Tea Is Pu-erh
Pu-erh is a fermented Chinese drink that is made from tea in much the same way as kombucha. Fermenting the tea boosts the health benefits and also loads it with probiotics, which are essential for overall health and well-being. It has been shown to improve many health markers, such as cholesterol and blood sugar, among people who have metabolic syndrome.
Pu-erh has long been popular in China but does not have the same popularity in the West as its cousin, kombucha, does. It is more bitter than unfermented tea, but its health-boosting properties more than compensate for the taste.
