Ripe Pu-erh tea, also known as “cooked” or “black” Pu-erh, is a type of Chinese tea that is made from sun-dried and fermented Camellia sinensis leaves. It is similar to raw Pu-erh, but it undergoes an additional processing step known as “wet piling.” This step accelerates the fermentation process and gives the tea a distinct taste and aroma. Ripe Pu-erh is often aged for several years and is known for its smooth, rich, and earthy flavor. Some people also describe a fruity or woody taste. Ripe Pu-erh is also highly valued by tea connoisseurs and is considered a delicacy.
