Raw, also called green or sheng pu-erh(生普洱), is pu-erh tea that has not been oxidized or artificially aged in the way that ripe or cooked (black) pu-erh is. Raw pu-erh, like all pu-erh tea, originated in and is mostly produced in Yunnan, China. Originally, all Pu-erh produced was raw Pu-erh.

Like ripe pu-erh, raw pu-erh is often aged and often becomes more desirable with age. Raw pu-erh tends to have a very strong flavor before it is aged.

Raw pu-erh is available both loose and in compressed forms, such as a tuocha cake. Raw pu-erh can be classified as both a green tea and a pu-erh tea.
