Bulang pu-erh tea is famous for its exquisite taste. Originating from Bulang Mountain in Menghai, this tea begins with a hint of astringency, then evolves into a sweet and calming drink. Its thick taste also conveys a highly mountainous flavor unparalleled in other teas. The natural and premium quality of Bulang tea is a product of its history. Members of the minority group Pu, who have lived in the Bulang Mountains for centuries, have long been considered masters at producing tea from the plants growing around them. The Bulang Mountains are also home to other minorities, such as the La Gu, Ha Ni, and Han. The area boasts 6.5 million square meters of tea trees that are more than 200 years old.
