Origin

The leaves for this tea come from the Simao area of Yunnan province, which has produced high-quality pu-erh for more than eight hundred years. This area is right along the edge of Tibet, at a high elevation with warm summers and abundant rainfall, resulting in tea trees with large, plump buds and leaves perfect for making pu-erh in particular.

Tea Bush

The Yunnan large-leaf tea tree is a rare variety in the world, and is best used to make pu-erh tea. Yunnan has a unique advantage in its geographical position: its rich rainfall and ideal temperature are perfect for planting large-leaf tea trees like this. The leaves of these varieties contain abundant polyphenols, as well as catechins, amino acids, and caffeine, like most kinds of tea.

History

Pu-erh tea is one of the oldest types of Chinese tea, with a history stretching back over 1,700 years to the Eastern Han Dynasty, when the tea was called Jing Cha. It is named after the town of Pu’er in Yunnan province, which was the earliest trading center for this tea. In its early history pu-erh was used as a bartering currency throughout southwest China, and there the famed Cha Ma Gu Dao - or Tea Horse Road - was built especially to transport this tea through the Himalayas to other countries and areas in Tibet.
