A unique aged tea, Pu'er is made from Yunnan tea and stored to age after oxidation. The most popular cooked Pu'er teas are oxidized and then aged. Pu'er is also compressed into cakes, bricks, "bowls" (tuo cha), and other shapes. Molding the leaves requires a brief injection of steam; this small step alters the character of the finished compressed tea, and Pu'er connoisseurs prefer these over loose Pu'er. "Uncooked" Pu'er begins as non-oxidized tea, and the leaves undergo slight, natural oxidation as they age. For compressed teas, break off small pieces to brew, or steam the entire cake/brick to loosen the leaves; spread the leaves out and allow them to dry completely, then store in a lidded container.
