Pu'er Tea

Pu'erh puerh tea

Pu’er tea is a famous type of Chinese tea. It is made with sun-dried Shaiqinmao tea leaves (Yunnan big-leaf variety). Pu’er tea has been produced in Yunnan province for more than 2000 years, but due to its unique origin, history and process of production, it hasn’t spread to other areas until much later; hence it is sometimes referred to as “national treasure tea”. The unique features of this tea are its ageing ability and health benefits. Pu’erh is well known for the mellowness, bitterness and sweetness brought by ageing. Other teas can be aged for a few years if taken good care of; however Pu’erh can be aged for decades with remarkable effect on the caffeine content and polyphenol - antioxidant substances contained within it.
