Pu-Erh tea is quite strong and will take you by surprised if you’ve never had it. While some love the unique flavor, others say it’s more of an acquired taste. Pu-Erh is the only tea that’s fermented and is gown in southwestern China Yunnan Province. There are two types of Pu-Erh teas:
Raw (Sheng) Pu-Erh
The process is similar to that of green tea: picked, roasted, sundried and then steamed so they can be molded into cakes. The cakes are then left to age until the proper taste is achieved.
Cooked (Shou) Pu-Erh
The process is similar to that of Sheng with the addition of one more step called wet piling, which allows us to ferment.
