Pu’erh teas can be further subdivided between Sheng or “Raw” pu’erh and Shou or “Ripe” pu’erh. Pu’erh is defined by the tea varietal, location and the technique used to make it. Quality pu’erh is wonderfully complex and can be aged and stored like a fine wine. Those who enjoy Sheng pu’erh will find its similarities to green tea, while Shou pu’erh lovers enjoy the warm, fermented earthy flavors.
