Pu Erh is a fermented and often aged black tea from the Yunnan province in China and therefore has a very unique flavour.
The Pu Erh teas go through a special kind of production process which entails a microbial fermentation and oxidation of the tea leaves, after they have been dried and rolled.
The taste is powerful and often requires the patience of getting used to it. The tea has been used for medicinal purposes in China and is known to have special affects (these can be found on the internet).
All types of Pu Erh teas can be saved for maturation before they are consumed and therefore Pu Erh teas are often marked with the production year and area. The name of the tea is pronounced “pu’ar”.
