Products of China’s Yunnan province, Pu-erh teas come green (sheng, uncooked or raw) and black (shou, cooked or ripe), either loose-leaf or compressed. Known for its rich, earthy fragrance and flavor with notes of plums, dates, and chocolate. Pu-erh can be stored many years – even decades – in cool, dry cellars to improve flavor. Fermented twice, pu-erh is often said to have “vintages” like fine wine. Some vintages of pu-erh are very rare and very expensive.
