Once transported overland through the so-called “Road of tea and horses”, Pu Erh tea is a specialty originating in Yunnan, China. It undergoes a unique manufacturing process, a prolonged microbial fermentation that gives the full and sweetish flavor and the distinctive fragrance of underbrush. Great accompaniment to charcuterie and cheeses, it is highly reputed in China for the healthful properties.
