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)
FENG is from the FengQing district in LinCang City of the Yunnan Province. The oldest tea tree (camellia sinensis) in the world which is 3200-3300 years old had been found in FengQing area. There are many of hundred-years old tea trees produce many high quality puerh teas in this area.
This raw puerh disc uses the tea leaves in north-west of the Puerh Tea area, in the FengQing district. It was made in 1998, the taste is getting closer to cooked puerh but still with flavour complexities of raw puerh.
