Puerh is a large leafed tea from the Yunnan province in China and has become famous as a medicinal wonder tea. It is favoured by Celebrities and is a purported aid to weight loss and healthy living. The earliest record of puerh tea dates back to the Tang Dynasty (618AD-906AD) when it was the drink of nobleman.
The tea derives its name from the market town of Pu-er, where it was originally processed and sold. It is said that the unique taste of puerh tea was developed because it took weeks to transport the tealeaves by horseback to the town to be processed. During this transportation period the tealeaves would begin to ferment in the humidity and release a strong, fragrant aroma, which is how the Pu’er tea was created.
