Pure Puer Tea for Arthritis – An Athlete’s Perspective


I started drinking Pure Puer Tea after being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I’m doing so well now that I’m now running half marathons and doing Olympic distance Triathlons:)

I take other medications but I feel like my improvement has ties to the tea. I take the lowest possible doses of medication now…..no anti inflammatories or steroids needed at this point, which makes me very happy. I have no scientific proof that the tea helps but I can tell you that I feel great.

I drink tea first thing when I wake up and then 3 or 4 more times during the day. I do this 7 days a week, and have been doing so for about three years now:)
I can tolerate the puer without getting an upset stomach which many other teas do when I drink early in the day.

    That is a broad question. I haven’t heard of any bad reactions with other remedies, but that is too broad of a question for me to answer.

  2. Can I mix this tea with conventional remedies?

  3. I’m definitely going to try this tea!

    I’ve been drinking Pu-erh tea recently simply because it was mentioned when others were discussing good tasting teas. I like it and unlike black tea never tastes bitter. I just noticed today my joints and muscles but especially my wrist was aching pretty bad. I hadn’t had my usually tea today and had olong yesterday instead. I had a cup of pu-erh in the evening and after a bit of rest the aching was gone!

    So I decided to look online and see if it was known for having this effect and found your blog. So apparently isn’t a well known benefit but it sure is nice. Glad you shared so I know I’m right and it is the tea.

    Oh one plus I don’t get that caffeine buzz or jitters and though it gives me energy won’t keep me wake if I have it late. Great tea for so many reasons.

    Thanks for sharing your story of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am on a low dose of Methotrexate which has helped. I also went on a vegan vegetarian diet which has helped immensely. I started doing Tai Chi and this is where I found your article. I’m going to try the Pu Er Cha and see if it makes a difference.

    Thank you for sharing your story.
