Pu-erh - Including Compressed Teas

Pu-erh (Pu'er or Puer) is a type of tea made from a "large leaf" variety of the tea plant Camellia sinensis and named after Pu'er County near Simao, Yunnan Province, China. 

It is traditionally made with leaves from old wild tea trees of a variety known as "broad leaf tea".  Pu-erh tea is loved because of its origin of high elevation, pollution-free in nature, and because it's generally mellow in taste and often exhibits a mild but slightly sweet aftertaste.

Traditionally, Pu-erh is well known for the fact that it is mostly a compressed tea and also because it ages well to produce a pleasant brew. Through storage, the tea typically takes on a darker colour and mellower flavour characteristics. Most often, Pu-erh leaves are compressed into tea cakes or bricks, and are wrapped in various materials, which when stored away from excessive moisture, heat, and sunlight, help to mature the tea.
