Pu-erh Tea

Puerh is the Ancient Ancestor of All Tea, and grows only in one place on the planet – Southwestern (Yunnan) China. It is historically a large leaf variety of Tea that grows as a TREE, some of which even exist today as 1000+ year-old wise elders still offering up their leaves to humanity.  Many Puerh trees 300-800 years-old are regularly harvested in Yunnan.   The majority of authentic Puerh in the mainstream market comes from thousands of trees under 200 years of age.
