Several thousand years' long history of Pu'er has nurtured its unique tea culture. And the miraculous tea-horse ancient roads, where we seem as if we could still be able to hear the camel bells, serve as a starting point for dialogue of Pu'er with world civilization.
Advantageous Natural Environment

Pu'er features a mild and pleasant climate with an annual average temperature of 18.9 degrees Celsius and neither severe cold in neither winter nor intense heat in summer, for which it is known as "the spring amongst springs, and the spring city amongst spring cities". Nowadays despite the increasingly serious pollution, Pu'er still keeps the excellent rate of its air quality conditions at 100 percent. In the downtown area of Pu'er, the concentration of negative oxygen ions in air per cubic centimeter reaches 12,500, namely 12 times higher than the "clean air" standards specified by the World Health Organization.
