No. 177 - Ripened Tuocha Pu-erh Mini Tea Brick (2006)
Pu-erh tea is one of the oldest types of tea in China, with a history stretching back over 1,700 years to the Eastern Han Dynasty, when the tea was called Jing Cha. Pu-erh is named after the town of Pu-erh in the Yunnan province of China, which was the early trading center for this tea. Pu-erh has also been used as a bartering currency or dowry in parts of China. In Southwest China the famed Cha Ma Gu Dao - “Tea Horse Road” - was built especially to transport Pu-erh tea through the Himalayas to other countries and areas in Tibet.
Where is our Pu-erh tea produced
It is produced as it has been historically in the Yunnan Province of China, which has been a mecca for Pu-erh tea of the highest quality for over 800 years. The Yunnan Province is on the edge of Tibet, and has a very high elevation with warm summers producing abundant rainfall which gives these tea trees especially large, plump buds and leaves which are ideal for producing a premium Pu-erh tea.
