Known for its beautiful landscape filled with snow-capped mountains, terrace fields, lakes and gorges, valleys and forests, Yunnan province is one of the must-see areas if you visit China. Pu’er tea is another natural treasure proudly made by the locals in Pu’er County of the province.
Pu’er tea is a big-leaf variety of tea. It contains higher concentrations of organic compounds such as tea polyphenols and caffeine than teas made from trees with smaller leaves. This Raw Pu’er brings the warmth of sunshine: it can awaken your energy in the afternoon and helps digestion after lunch.
