What is Raw Puer Tea? As in our Tea Bonbon 'After lunch'?

Our Tea Plays Bonbon 'After Lunch' uses 'Raw Puer' Chinese tea. Does that sound familiar? Read on to discover more about this unusual form of Puer.

Were you aware of the difference between Raw Puer Tea and Fermented Puer tea? Maybe you're thinking, both them are Puer tea, so how important could the distinction be? Actually it makes a pretty big difference!

You might already know that green tea is totally unfermented tea and dark teas are fully fermented. In general, Fermented Puer is one kind of dark tea. But actually, Raw Puer tea is quite special.

In processing terms, Raw Puer tea is similar to green tea. In terms of their ideal qualities, good green teas have tender leaves, a 'soupy' green color and fresh taste. They also need to be consumed a short time after being picked. Raw Puer teas however can be pressed into a 'cake' shape and should actually be stored for a little while to ensure a good taste. A certain amount of natural fermentation occurs as they are stored, but they are still called 'raw' as they are not fermented deliberately. After 8 years of proper storage the colors and tastes will be very different to green tea and also a bit different from standard Fermented Puer: the infusion will be a light golden color, while the taste will become more mellow and smooth.

Due to the 'raw' nature of the leaves, the polyphenols, caffeine and catechins in Raw Puer tea remain high – which helps with mental awareness and clarity.
Many tea lovers in China buy Raw Puer and place it in storage to improve over time – not unlike European wine connoisseurs with their favorite bottles.

RawPuerTea

Many people think is a good ideal to store some Raw Puer tea when you have a new baby or marry someone. After many years, you can share it with your friends to celebrate your children's coming-of-age day or your wedding anniversary. There are few other products which can be stored such long time without spoiling. You can even taste the changes that time has brought.
