Pu erh tea is fashionable for its slimming effects (notice: there are no miracles in this world) and names inspired by marketing of all kinds have appeared so that companies can ensure that only they sell the authentic tea.

Pu-erh is the name of the locality where this type of tea was traded that farmers in the area produced. Now in the same Pu-erh a good part of this tea is processed, which is characterized by its special fermentation process and by obtaining large and adult tea trees with large and rough leaves.

Some names that I have found are:
– Pu-erh tea, also spelled as “pu er”
– Red tea
– Chinese red tea
– Tea devours fat (really, people ask me if I have the tea devours fat, as if it were the Fairy)
– Kunming Tea (Kunming is the closest city to Pu-erh and whose University was one of the first to investigate its beneficial properties)
– Tea of ​​the emperors, the truth is that this title is given to many teas. In the case of pu-erh there is no basis on which to say that only the emperors used it.

Pu erh red tea, Chinese red tea, greasy tea, kunming tea, tea of ​​the emperors

On the other hand, trying to join the pu-erh tea fashion sometimes sells the South African rooibos (a highly recommended South African herb, but that is not tea and has very different properties) like South African red tea, red tea, deheated or things like that. .

Changing a little subject, to me the truth is that it does not seem right to call Golden Buds Jasmine Black Tea infusions or tisanes that do not contain tea itself. The fact is that as in English they call “herbal teas” to infusions because the easiest thing is to translate literally. At this rate we will take “chamomile tea” or “mint tea pennyroyal”.
