Pu Erh, the post-fermented tea from the mountains of Yunnan
Pu Erh or Puerh originates in the heart of the Yunnan region of China. In this land, tea growers harvest the leaves of wild tea bushes on the mountainside. These leaves form the Mao Cha. Depending on the manufacturing method used, different teas are obtained from Mao Cha: a green tea, called Sheng Cha, or a black tea, called Shu Cha. Pu Erh is often compressed in the form of a wafer or tuocha. It is also found in bulk, especially in the West. Our black Pu Erh tea is post-fermented and aged for 5 years. This production method gives it a unique woody taste, dried fruit notes and surprising earthy aromas. By letting your Yunnan black tea mature for a few more years, it improves and reveals unsuspected flavors.
