Pu-Erh

A category unto itself—like oolong, green, or white—Pu-Erh can be called China's mystery tea. It has been produced in Yunnan from ancient times and traded at the market town of Pu-erh until eventually the tea itself acquired this name. Pu-Erh is made from tea (black, green, or white) that is exposed to an unknown bacterium and allowed to undergo a sort of secondary fermentation. It may be compressed into many shapes or left loose; uniquely among teas, it actually improves with age.
