Puer tea....fermented???? Sounds yucky!
Has anyone tried this type of tea?
Sometimes I regret living in a small city/town with very few specialty stores. I don't think I could even find Puer here.

Although each of these factors plays a difference in tea type, the main variable is the type of processing technique used. White tea is minimally processed. Green tea is steamed or fired to prevent oxidation. Black tea is heavily oxidized. Oolong tea is somewhat oxidized. Puer (or pu-erh) is fermented.
