Pu'er Tea

Pu'er tea is a type of fermented tea that originates from the Yunnan province in China. It is named after the city of Pu'er, which used to be a major trading centre for tea. Pu'er tea is known for its unique ageing process, which can span from several months to many years. The tea leaves undergo microbial fermentation and oxidation, resulting in a distinct flavour and aroma.

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’er is well known for its mellowness, bitterness and sweetness. Other teas can be aged for a few years if taken good care of; however, Pu’er can be aged for decades with a remarkable effect on the caffeine content and polyphenol - antioxidant substances contained within it.
