Yunnan Pu erh tea: an intense taste with woody notes
Yunnan Pu erh tea, of Chinese origin, is made from the leaves of wild tea trees that grow in this mountainous region. These trees are not subjected to any chemical treatment. Pu erh is therefore a high quality organic tea, which can be fermented or not. After being plucked and laid flat, the tea leaves are dried in the sun. The result is a green tea called mao cha, which is then aged, in bulk or compressed into cakes, for several years. This is called post-fermentation.
