Puerhs and Dark Teas

As in wine, a tea that has been aged takes on a whole new world of flavor and nuances. Dark teas occur when the tea leaves have been fermented, and in some cases, aged. In the case of teas produced in the Yunnan Province of China, they are referred to as "puerhs". All other fermented, and sometimes aged teas, not in produced in Yunnan, will fall into the "heicha" or dark tea category.
