  • China, Yunnan, Pu'er area, Simao District

    The Pu'er region of Yunnan has an extremely large population of ancient wild tea trees called "Zhen Yuan", some of them which are thousands of years old. Simao is an important place for growing and production of Pu Er tea & is also a major distribution center. In ancient times, tea would be sent to the city of Pu'er to be processed before being sold. Shu "riping" of Pu Er is a modern invention from early 1970's developed because of high demand for Sheng "Raw" Pu Er teas, which takes decades to age. Shu processing method is accelerated development of flavour in which Mao Cha is being exposed to bacteria. During this fermentation, mould produces organic acid and pH of tea is reduced. Tea is completely fermented in a much shorter period of time, usually about 2 months. These teas age like a wine and will improve their flavour and mellow with age.
