Pu-erh tea is a rarity. This tea is processed in a special way that encourages microbial fermentation. As pu-erh tea ferments, it oxidises and develops a flavour profile like no other tea around.
Historically, the process of creating pu-erh was incredibly time-consuming. Some pu-erh blends could take decades to properly ferment. Thankfully, modern technology has discovered new ways to expedite the fermentation process. This has made pu-erh tea more accessible, so more people could enjoy the unique experience it offers.
Pu-erh tea is distinctive because it also comes in different shapes. You can find it in “cakes” or as a loose leaf variety. Traditionally consumed as a digestif after a heavy meal, pu-erh pairs well with rich desserts and dim sum. Due to its rich flavour profile, pu-erh tea is also a great option for people who are interested in a coffee alternative.
