Young Ripe Pu'er (茗熟普洱茶) is broken up from tea cakes which contain tea leaves that have been picked, rolled, withered in the hot sun and then steamed and pressed. The steaming process generates the moisture that is responsible for the musty and earthy characteristics of Ripe Pu'er Tea.

Like wines, young ripe Pu'er are considered less valuable than older teas (some 5 years or older) as indeed the taste of puer becomes more mellow with age. This tea is classed as a young ripe Pu'er as it is only 1 year old, however it has the wonderful earthy, musty flavour associated with many older ripe Pu'er dark teas.
