If this is your first time ever hearing about Chinese Pu’er Tea, here is an analogy for you:
Say, you drink a lot of coffee. At some point you feel like you can now taste the difference between good coffee and bad coffee. Fast forward in time and now you can tell the difference between good coffee and GREAT coffee. Now that you’ve had such incredible coffee, you feel like you can truly appreciate all the enchanting little subtleties in it, and now you actually feel the difference it makes from within. Your mind & body feel so much more enhanced and enlightened after drinking such a high quality brew that it makes you wonder how you could have ever drank anything so less than that before. Now, instead of coffee, imagine it’s tea. Welcome to the realm of teas, where pu’er tea reigns the grandest (no pun intended) and most supreme.
Of all the teas in China, none is so valued as pu’er, yet in the west it is relatively unheard of. Pu'er tea (Chinese: 普洱) (pinyin: pǔ'ěr) is a type of fermented tea made only in the Yunnan province of China. The tea is processed using microbial fermentation and oxidation of pre-dried tea leaves which results in the very rich and highly sought-after flavor of the tea.
The process of fermenting tea is a Chinese specialty and is different from other types of teas in the way it is made and cared for. The town of Pu'er is named after the tea that it produces from the hundred-year-old trees that grow nearby. The world of tea is a fascinating place to explore, and we welcome you to join us on our journey of tea..
