The Pu Erh brick: the famous compressed black tea from Yunnan
Pu Erh, also spelled Puerh, is an old tea from the Yunnan province in China. Consumed for more than 1,000 years, Puerh is highly appreciated by the Chinese. This unique black tea is an exceptional product of superior quality. The production process begins with the plucking of the leaves from the wild tree, which grows in the mountains of Yunnan. The leaves are withered and dried. The organic Puerh tea is then compressed into a cake or brick. This ancient technique allowed the Chinese to easily transport the Puerh on the tea route. The patty also allows a better conservation of the leaves.
