Puer Tea is a variety of fermented tea produced in Yunnan province, China, and named after the town of Puer. Fermentation in the context of tea production involves microbial fermentation and oxidation of the tea leaves, after they have been dried and rolled. 

Tea nugget or Cha Tou in Chinese are the leaves that naurally ball up and get stuck together due to its presures of comprssion and heat occurs during the fermentation process.  

This Puer Tea is made from the combination of tea buds and tender leaves which was carefully selected after all the teas being fermanted and then steamed and compressed into round disc shape.  Its flavour is full-bodied but not heavy, less earthiness, with a hint of wild mushroom and gentle sweetness in the aftertaste.  

A very easy and pleasure tea to drink and would be a perfect choice for a person who does not have much experience with Puer Tea.
