How To Make 

Pu-erh Tea - Cooked Tea

Pu’erh tea is the specialty of Yunnan province in China, and is made from a broadleaf varietal of the tea plant. Pu’erh tea retains both its flavours and antioxidants with time and thus, just like wine, it can be improved by ageing. This occurs through a fermentation process where microbes act on the tea leaves over time, causing the leaves to darken, and rounding and developing the flavour and mouthfeel of the tea. Depending on the conditions and environment of ageing, the taste can transform through various stages of being fruity, nutty, herbal and earthy.
