Pu-erh tea is a type of dark tea that is produced in the Yunnan province of China. Pu-erh tea is made from a special variety of Camellia sinensis plant called Camellia sinensis var. assamica, which is native to the Yunnan province. The leaves are picked and then sun-dried before they are fermented and oxidized. This process gives pu-erh its unique flavor and aroma. Pu-erh tea is typically earthy and mellow, with a deep amber color. It is often said to have an "aged" or "woodsy" flavor, and pu-erh aficionados often compare its taste to that of wine.
Pu-erh tea is traditionally drunk in small cups or bowls, and it is often served after a meal. Pu-erh is known for its health benefits, and it is said to aid in digestion and weight loss. Pu-erh tea is also believed to have anti-aging properties, and it is sometimes consumed as a beauty tonic.
