Tea Info: Pu-erh, Pu’er tea, Puer tea or Bolay tea is a type of tea made from a ‘large leaf’ variety of the tea plant Thea sinensis and named after Pu’er County in the Chinese Yunnan Province. Pu-erh tea can be purchased as either raw/green (sheng) or ripened/cooked (shou), depending on processing method or aging. Sheng pu-erh can be roughly classified on the tea oxidation scale as a green tea, and the shou or aged-green variants as post-fermented tea. The fact that Pu-Erh fits in more than one tea type poses some problems for classification. For this reason, the ‘green tea’ aspect of Pu-Erh is sometimes ignored, and the tea is regarded solely as a post-fermented product. Unlike other teas that should ideally be consumed shortly after production, pu-erh can be drunk immediately or aged for many years; Pu-Erh teas are often now classified by year and region of production much like wine vintages.

Additional Notes: Why is TeaFountain supporting Farmers that produce sustainably cultivated teas? As pointed out by the EPA, sustainability is based on the principle that everything we need for our survival and well-being depends on our natural environment. To create sustainability is to maintain conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations. Therefore it is relating to methods of manufacturing and harvesting using resources so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged.
Increasingly Tea Garden Farmers are aware of those important stated facts that also help to keep production costs low and work environments humane, and therefore “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations”.
