Xishuangbanna - a major tea growing area in China
Xishuangbanna (Xi Shuang Banna) is the southern most autonomous prefecture of the Yunnan province and covers an area of 19¡¯700km2 which is about half the size of Switzerland. It shares its border with Myanmar to the south-west and Laos to the south-east. The name Xishuangbanna (Xi Shuang Banna) originates from the Thai word Sip Song Pa Na, which means literally ¡°12 rice-growing districts.¡±


The areas around Pu¡¯er, Mengla and Yiwu are famous for their high quality green tea and pu¡¯er tea production. Especially the Pu¡¯er Tea has gained popularity around the world in recent years. Pu'er is the name of a city that was on the ancient Tea and Horse Route in the south of Yunnan, China. Subsequently, it is a name that has come to refer to a particular kind of tea; a post-fermented, aged tea produced in Yunnan Province in the south west of China.


Health benefits of Pu'er Tea
Pu'er tea has proven evidence for weight loss and a remarkable reduction in cholesterol levels with clinical trials carried out within Europe, USA and China. Rich in vitamins and minerals, it also is known to reduce stress and lowering high blood pressure. Used for centuries and recognized as an herbal medicine by the Chinese, later becoming the everyday drink of the people, most Chinese will drink a Pu'er tea just after eating any food that is heavy or greasy.
