For a tea to be called pu-erh, it must be made from the large-leaf subspecies Camellia sinensis var. assamica (this is the same plant that is used for making green, oolong, and black teas) and grown in Yunnan Province in China. Pu-erh stands apart from every other tea as its leaves go through a natural fermentation process before the tea is gently dried. This not only creates a cup with zero astringency and deep, rich body, but this fermentation process also helps produce micro-organisms which are being shown to be particularly beneficial to the human body.
