The tea owes its name to the Puer City in Yunnan Province (Southern China), where the tea has been brought to the market from the mountain harvests in the vicinity of Simao and Xishuangbanna. The Pu Erh tea is a typical product of Yunnan Province, where special species of the tea tree can be found.
