Puer

Puer is a sub-category of Dark Tea that comes from Yunnan province in China. Puer teas can be the strongest teas in the world. They can also be medium-bodied, bright, and slightly sweet depending on how you prepare them. Puer teas typically are aged and are prized in China for their medicinal properties and earthy flavor.
