Puerh tea falls into two different categories based on the processing methods after harvest.
Fresh (shengchá) raw / green Puerh tea
Aged (shúchá) oxidized / black Puerh tea
Most people are surprised to learn that all tea comes from the same plant. Tea is classified into the different categories such as “green” or “black” tea only based the processing of the leaves after harvest.
Green tea: Leaves are sun-dried, not fermented and retain natural color
Black tea: Leaves are roasted, fully fermented, and produce a darker tea
Wulong tea: Leaves are partially fermented, categorized as half way between green and black teas.
Tisane: Mixtures of fragrant flowers and/or herbs.
Healthy Puerh Tea is proud to offer both
fresh and aged Puerh teas.
