What is Fermented Tea (Puer)?

Fermented Tea (Puer) is a unique category of tea that has been fermented by microbes, similar to wine or chocolate. There are two main types of Pu'er.

  • Raw Puer (Sheng Pu) - made from Green Tea (not oxidized) leaves that have been been allowed to naturally ferment over a long period of time.

  • Cooked Puer (Shou Pu) - made from Red Tea (oxidized) leaves that have been heated with moisture to encourage fast fermentation.

Customer Reviews




About Casstea.co

We know that the world's most delicious, aromatic and prized tea comes from most remote authentic Terrior regions reaches of China. We also know that Chinese tea is confusing to English speakers, hard to source, and worst of all is often faked for profit. 

Unlike French Wine Terroir regions which have strict Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) governmental requirements, China's Terroir region has no such certifications. Tea suppliers know - and often exploit this - by selling inferior teas which cost pennies in place of rare varietals that fetch hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Ouch.
