Pu-erh tea is made from Yunnan large-leaf varietal of Camellia Sinensis. It is typically processed into compressed cakes, bricks and tuos. Pu-erh is particularly special because it can be aged for decades or longer, always changing and (in most cases) developing more depth and texture. Raw Pu-erh (生茶) is the traditional form of Pu-erh, and is sun-dried and compressed.
Lincang Prefecture is one of the largest pu-erh producing tea regions. Bordered by Burma to the north and Pu’er Prefecture to the south, Lincang is home to a few of the most famed areas of tea production. Bingdao and Xigui are two of the most famous.
