The legendary Pu Erh tea comes from the Chinese province of Yunnan. For Pu Erh, the same applies as for high-quality wine: the older, the better.
Pu Erh is considered a delicacy amongst connoisseurs. Due to its special fermentation process, it differs from both the classic green tea and black tea. Characteristic features are the spicy-earthy flavour and the reddish coloured infusion. In earlier times, the enjoyment of drinking Pu Erh was reserved for the Chinese rulers, which is why it is also known as “the Emperor’s tea”.
