Tea Knowledge and Historical Background:
"Pu'er traditionally begins as a raw product known as "rough" tea and can be sold in this form or pressed into a number of shapes and sold as "raw" tea. Both of these forms then undergo the complex process of gradual fermentation and maturation with time.
The fermentation technique (Wo Dui process) developed in the mid-1970s by the Menghai and Kunming Tea Factories created a new type of pu-erh tea, whose legitimacy is disputed by some traditionalists. This process involves an accelerated fermentation into "ripe" Shou Cha (熟茶) which is then stored loose or pressed into various shapes."

普洱茶發展的全盛時期， 雲南人把茶葉經過曬青、揉製、蒸壓後，用山竹包裝好， 放到馬背上，送到中國甚至世界各地。 今時今日，在雲南的山中，依然保存了當是馬幫們所走過的茶馬古道。 幾百年來滄桑的茶馬古道與那陣陣駝鈴之聲，把雲南的普洱茶帶到西藏、青海、新疆、北京，緬甸，印度等亞洲各國。在山石古道上，清晰可見的馬蹄，印證的昔日古道的繁榮。 相繼而來， 普洱茶通過5條茶馬古道遠銷至法國，英國等歐洲國家。 而在馬幫的茶葉運送過程中，因為深不可測的天氣變化和馬背上下的震動，夜間大地的滋潤熏蒸，使茶葉自然發酵，雲南普洱茶的獨特韻味 就是從傳奇歷史中成就起來的。
