Pu-erh is a large leafed tea from the Yunnan province in China and has been famous as a medicinal tea. The earliest records of Pu-erh tea date back to the Tan Dynasty( 618AD-906AD ) when it was the favorite tea of the nobleman of this time.
Pu-erh tea over the centuries has been used as a form of currency in China and an important international trading item.
Pu-erh tea derives its name from the market town of Pu-erh, where it was originally processed and sold. It is said that the unique taste of Puerh Tea was developed because it took weeks to transport the tea leaves by horseback to the town to be processed. During this transportation period the tea leaves would begin to ferment in the humidity and release a strong, fragrant aroma, which people found quite pleasant. A special technique of tea fermenting developed and Pu’er was thus created.
The secret of making Pu-erh tea has been closely guarded in China for centuries. The tea leaves are collected from growers of a special broad-leaf tea tree, which are said to be related to ancient prehistoric tea trees. The leaves go through two types of fermentation, which gives this tea its unique characteristics; a mild, but distinctively earthy flavour. Pu-erh teas are much like fine wines, which become smoother and more balanced with age. Pu-erh teas are much lower in tannins than other teas due to the special processing method which it undergoes.

Brewing Pu-erh Tea:
To make tea must control the water temperature, which greatly effect the aroma and tasty of the tea soup. Pu-erh Tea requests the boiled water of the 95~100. How much tea can depend on personal taste, generally, 3-5 grams tea properly with 150 milliliters water, and the proportion of tea to water between 1:50-1:30.
For the tea purer aroma, it is necessary to warm tea, i.e., pour out the boiled water immediately for the first time, which can have 1-2 times. The speed must be quick so that the taste of the tea soup can be prevented from influence. While really starting, about a minute the tea soup can be poured into the public cup, and then continue the second. With more times, the time can be prolonged slowly, from 1 minute to a few minutes gradually, which can keep the even density of tea soup.
