Tea from the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, helps to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.* Yunnan tuocha tea, in particular, has been researched for its health promoting properties. The Chinese attribute special qualities and health benefits to Yunnan tuocha tea. Traditionally, this mild and delicious black tea was used to help promote healthy digestion, especially of fat, and balance health. Green, black and oolong teas, “cha”, all are made from the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. Yunnan tuocha tea, however, is one of a few teas known as “pu-er cha”, made from an ancient subspecies of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis assamica. It is grown in the Yunnan province of southern China. “Tuo cha” means bowl-shaped tea. It refers to the method of shaping the pu-er tea during drying. Experts recommend drinking three cups of this tea everyday. Enjoy it hot or iced. Drink it as is, or try adding lemon and your favorite sweetener. Also, drink any of Triple Leaf Tea’s green, white or decaf green teas to help to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range

Not as earthy as I hoped
This wasn't as strong as I'd hoped it would be, I bought it not for the supposed cholesterol benefits but because it was Pu 'er tea and I usually like the taste. It was a bit addictive though, so there was something in it my body liked. I was expecting a more full-bodied taste with more earthy-toned notes, but I liked it.
