The Process of Pu-erh Raw Tea and Ripe Tea

The diagram illustrates the process of making pu-erh Ripe tea and Raw tea.

Overall, both tea-making processes have three same initial stages: pan frying, rolling and drying under the sun after this process differs for ripe and raw teas.

In the pan frying process, the leaves of trees are taken into a big pan and allowed to fry, which causes the inactivation of enzymes. Then the leaves are rolled and dried under sunlight. After completion of 3 common steps, making ripe tea involves three more steps. After drying under the sun, loose raw tea undergoes fermentation by mould and becomes loose, ripe tea, which becomes pu-erh ripe tea after compression.
