Pu-erh Tea

The history of Pu-erh tea can be traced back to the East Han Dynasty, originally produced in Xishuangbanna and Simao area, Yunnan province. Pu-erh tea produced from the six famous tea mountains (Mansa, Yiwu,Manzhuan, Yibang, Gedeng and Youle) are the most famous. Pu-erh tea is created from the green Maocha broad-leaf tea variety and compressed into different specifications. The tea was discovered in Puer and thus named Puer tea. After hundreds of years of changes and development, Pu-erh has reached its current popularity today. The tea picking season is from late February to November, but the tea picked in the spring is the best.
Pu-erh tea has more than one tea types, but normally is classified into raw tea and ripened tea according to the processing technique.
