How to judge Pu-erh tea quality

There are many types of tea in Pu-erh Tea. They are called “one mountain and one flavor”. They are also enthusiasts. Perhaps you like Hekai flavor, and I like Banpen Tea. Many friends who buy Pu-erh tea quality do not know how to choose. However, no matter what kind of tea is, it is generally distinguished from the important factors of mountain, shape, aroma, soup color, taste, and tea base. Pu-erh tea is different from other teas in that it has the unique characteristics of being older and more fragrant, because it can be stored for a long time, and it will be stored for a long time. With the change of time, there will be new and old Pu-erh tea. How to distinguish Pu-erh tea quality?

1. From the appearance.

Look at the appearance: The cords are neatly and tightly knotted, the shape is uniform, and the elasticity is moderate. The color is normal with turquoise, brown, and reddish brown, and the surface is round. If there are mold flowers or spots on the surface, it means that the mold has deteriorated. Whether it is ten years old tea or two decades of top Puer tea, the tea is inferior. Do not start.
2. Aroma aspect.

Pu-erh is pure and has no odor. The concentration of aroma should be distinguished from musty and scented (General Pu-erh tea has camphor, jujube and orchid), Pu-erh old tea has medicinal scent.

3. From the soup color.

Take a look at soup color: cooked tea soup is red and bright, remember to be dark and turbid. Raw tea soup is yellow and clear, if there is turbidity, suspended matter is deteriorated Pu-erh tea. The color of Pu-erh tea is from reddish brown to wine red.
4. From the taste.

The cooked tea is rich and smooth, while the raw tea is pure and quick.
5. Watch tea leaf bottom.

Another way to identify Pu-erh tea quality is to see if the bottom of the leaves is incomplete and whether it is still soft. If it is complete and has a high degree of softness, it can be judged as high-quality Pu-erh tea. The color of cooked tea is reddish-brown, very soft, and it can be kneaded into lumps. Poor quality Puer tea residues are hard to the touch, like a thick fiber.
