Pu-erh tea gets its name from the region in China where it was first harvested, the city of Pu-erh in the Yunnan Province of China. Pu-erh tea is often classified as being a variety of tea by itself, and is sometimes classified at being a dark tea (dark tea is one of the six classes of tea in China), or as a type of black tea in the United States, although it is actually a variety by itself, such as green tea or white tea. Pu-erh tea is available as a loose leaf tea or in a compressed form such as tea cakes or tea bricks, or our PureTea miniature tea cakes.


Where is our Puerh tea produced

It is produced as it has been historically in the Yunnan Province of China, which has been a mecca for Pu-erh tea of the highest quality for over 800 years. The Yunnan Province is on the edge of Tibet, and has a very high elevation with warm summers producing abundant rainfall which gives these tea trees especially large, plump buds and leaves which are ideal for producing a premium Pu-erh tea.

History

Pu-erh tea is one of the oldest types of tea in China, with a history stretching back over 1,700 years to the Eastern Han Dynasty, when the tea was called Jing Cha. Pu-erh is named after the town of Pu-erh in the Yunnan province of China, which was the early trading center for this tea. Pu-erh has also been used as a bartering currency or dowry in parts of China. In Southwest China the famed Cha Ma Gu Dao - “Tea Horse Road” - was built especially to transport Pu-erh tea through the Himalayas to other countries and areas in Tibet.
