What is Puerh and its Health Benefits

Pu-erh or Pu'er is a variety of aged dark tea produced in Yunnan province, China. Fermentation is a tea production style in which the tea leaves undergo microbial fermentation and oxidation after they are dried and rolled.

Technically classified not as black but dark black tea, the best of which is aged for decades before use. The base may be green tea or black, and its tastes and aromas can range from earthy to elegant. In China it has been customarily drunk with or after meals as a digestive. Puerh is an aged tea from China prized for its medicinal properties and earthy flavor. Puerh is the only deliberately aged tea. In theory: the older it is the better and the more valuable it is. It is rich, earthy, and can be very strong. Puerh has active bacteria that interact with the leaf (much like yogurt) and deepen the flavor of the tea.Where does it come from?

What does puerh taste like?
Puerh can have an earthy flavor, often described as rich and dark, it can also be sweet and floral and may even leave a tingling sensation on your tongue.
How do they age it?
The specifics of aging are closely guarded trade (and government) secrets. However, you can find the basics of brewing in literature as well.
What are the main types of Puerh?
There are two basic categories of Puerh, what is called cooked (or black) and uncooked (or green) Puerh. Cooked Puerh is allowed to oxidize, with the leaves damp, over the course of several days, resulting in a deeper/darker leaf and brew (closer to a black tea). Uncooked Puerh is not allowed to oxidize, thus producing a lighter brew, closer to green tea.

Some puerhs are cultivated from ancient trees over 100 years of age; this is regarded as the best. Many puerhs found in the market are cultivated from young trees and have not been aged for long periods of time. However, traditionally young and ancient tree Puerh teas are aged for years. The longer the puerh is allowed to age the more valuable it becomes and the more health benefits are found when brewing. There is quite an art to finding the right puerh for you....
