Puerh tea is sometimes put into the black tea category, but it should actually have a category all its own. Traditional puerh is made from large-leaf, old-growth trees in Yunnan province, the birthplace of all Tea.

After processing it is then left to ferment naturally over time, considered finished after 70 years. Starting in the 60's, and then officially in 1973, several puerh factories were working to try to speed up the fermentation of puerh artificially.  The new kind of tea was called shou (ripe) puerh. Ripe puerh is processed like traditional sheng (raw) puerh only with the added step of post-production piling, similar to composting. This tea is dark, rich and earthy while still tasting clean.

This is a fermented tea from 2017 using raw material from trees around 200 years old. The processing uses heat and moisture allowing beneficial bacteria to break down the leaves. Thick, smooth and a favourite of the seasoned tea drinker, especially on a cold day.
