Pu’er (普洱) is located in southern of Yunnan.The name Pu’er dates back to 1729, but was changed to Simao ( 思茅 ) in 1950 after the Communist Revolution. In 2007, the original name of Pu’er was restored. This change had an effect on the size of the official Pu’er tea production area, a major regional product.
