Pu'er tea

Pu'er tea is a unique fermented tea from Yunnan province, China, classified into two types: raw (sheng) and ripe (shou) Pu'er. Its history dates back to the Tang Dynasty, but it wasn't until the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) that Pu'er tea became a significant trade commodity.

The name "Pu'er" originates from its main trading hub, Pu'er city, an important stop along the ancient Tea Horse Road.

Raw Pu'er tea is initially bitter but becomes smoother and mellow with age. Ripe Pu'er tea undergoes artificial fermentation, resulting in a rich flavor with distinctive aged aromas and sweetness.
