Pu-erh or Pu'er is a variety of fermented tea produced in Yunnan province, China. The town of Pu'er is named after the tea that is produced close by.
Made with spring leaves from tea trees that are around 100-years-old, this Bulang mountain tea has a well-fermented ripe Pu-erh flavor that is bold and earthy. Pu’er tea is digestive and reduces harmful cholesterol. It is equally satisfying whether drunk hot or iced. (banateacompany.com)
Bulangshan Mountain of the Bulang people is not very far away from the city of Pu’er by linear measurement. Only 244 km. Harvested in the Nadameng reservoir, a top-quality nature reserve located in Bulang mountain, Yunnan, China, this tea presents buds and leaves in beautiful shades of olive. As Pu-erh ages, it becomes smoother, more mellow, and less bitter. “ripe” Pu-erh is a bit more mild and smooth.
Pu-erh belongs to the category of fermented teas, usually called “dark“ tea or “black“ tea in China. It can be naturally fermented over time or by using a special pilling technique to accelerate the aging process. The two types are called raw and ripe Pu-erh or sheng Pu-erh and shou Pu-erh. Both of them contain different beneficial fungi and bacteria and may offer many health benefits. However, they influence the flavor too. Ripe Pu-erh is usually earthy and never bitter. The flavor will depend on many factors – from the leaf material to aging conditions and the type of bacteria and fungi that will develop, to storage conditions and brewing methods.
