    Menghai teas are considered as the benchmark of all Pu Er tea, with the oldest tea factory & oldest tea trees there is a magic in the soil. The soil contains specific white sandstone which is rich in minerals and variety of beneficial bacteria.
    Ripe Pu Er teas undergo a heavy fermentation process to speed up the natural slow fermentation of Raw Pu Er teas and meet the needs of tea drinkers who wishes for ready to drink dark strong & full bodied tea. You may notice a Leaf grade on Pu Er teas. This refers to size: grade 1 being the buds to 10 being the largest leaf size. They do not refer to quality, this is determined by the tea trees and processing.
