There are two kinds of puer tea: shu (ripe, cooked, heavily fermented) and sheng (raw, slightly or not fermented), both made from leaves and buds of Camellia Sinensis. Some buy puer and drink it soon, while others like to store it under different conditions (temperature, humidity, light) to see how the taste and fragrance transmutes overtime.
Our puer teas are sourced from Kunming tea markets.
