Puer Teas

Post-fermented or dark tea is unique in that it is stored and aged to develop is flavors. Puer, a well-known post-fermented tea, is produced as raw (green) or sheng cha and is       allowed to develop with natural aging – which can take years or decades – for a taste experience that is greener in flavor and becomes warmer and complex as it matures. Cooked (ripe) or shou cha, on the other hand, undergoes pile-fermentation to help speed up the aging process while producing a tea that is mellow and earthy.
