Pu erh: the next healthy beverage fad?

If I started a natural products company right now, it’d be a pu erh energy drink with a zippy graphic of lightning coming out of a Tao Sage’s long bony fingers. Baddabing, I’m rich!

What is pu-erh?

It’s so good. Well, it’s an acquired taste, like kombucha or, well, coffee…in any case it was drunk by the Taoist sages for health. It’s hardcore tea that’s been stored for eons in caves until it’s super rich, black and full of healthy stuff.

I drink it once a month whenever I’m hungover or sick.They have great pu-erh at the Trident cafe in Boulder, Colorado.
