Pu Erh tea is a variety of fermented dark tea produced in Yunnan province. The two main classifications of Pu Erh are green and dark, or oxidized Pu Erh. The ‘tuo cha’, meaning compressed tea, was developed in early China trade because the teas were bulky and hard to transport. Tea was compressed to compact the leaf reducing the size of the loads for long journeys.
Tasting Journal Snippets:
Pu Erh is extraordinarily smooth and deeply refreshing with a soft earthy flavour and woodsy tone.
