Puerh is a city that used to be the tea distribution centre of the Yunnan Province. As time went by, we regarded the tea from Puerh City as Puerh Tea.
Puerh Tea is a post-fermented tea, there are two types of Puerh Tea:
1) Raw Puerh (naturally fermented)
2) Cooked/Ripe Puerh (process fermented)
After 2 years of studying and testing from 1973, Cooked/Ripe Puerh Tea has been successfully produced in the Yunnan Province.
Puerh tea normally could compressed into 3 main shape: Disc, Brick and Tuo
This cooked puerh had been compressed into Tuo in 2006.
