White, Green, Yellow, Black, Oolong, and Pu’erh Tea All from the same plant: Camellia sinensis It is the processing that makes each different.
While the others are pushed to become immediately palatable, Puerh is aged ,fermenting over years, utilising the bacterial and fungal cultures naturally present on the leaves as they grow in the dense Yunnan rainforest; the birthplace of Tea. Puerh is the original tea, processed old school.
Terroir - Artistry - Time
Puerh will age, like fine wines, developing over time exquisite flavours and lovely Qi .
Distinctly, Puerh is not grown as a bush but rather allowed to grow naturally as a deep-rooted tree. The most prised are ancient tea trees, which can be hundreds of years old.
Where does the Qi come from ? one belief holds, the roots engage the vast biodiversity of the rainforest eco system , fermentation slowly composes the tea, thus revealing the deep root Qi
The older the tree, the deeper the roots, the better the Qi.
