The later transformation of raw Pu-erh tea has caused the storage of Pu-erh tea to become a university question. Whether it is the knowledge of storage space or the length of storage time, it will affect the transformation of Pu-erh tea and the value of Pu-erh tea. Many tea friends are very puzzled. How many years should the more cooked Pu-erh tea be stored before it tastes better?
There are many opinions about the storage time of raw Pu-erh tea, and the storage time of Pu-erh tea is also affected by the storage space. Generally speaking, the experience of many tea friends says that it takes at least 8 years for raw tea to reach a good taste.
The fresh raw tea has a strong taste, and most people dare not drink more, and store it for several years until the tea soup becomes smooth and mellow before tasting. As for how many years of storage before it starts to taste delicious, it is difficult to give a unified answer. Generally, storage for 5 years is different from the original, but it may take at least 8 years or more to achieve a delicious taste.
It should be noted that not only time, other factors, such as temperature, humidity, storage environment, packaging conditions, etc., also affect the conversion of raw tea. As for the same cake and tea, in the same time, there are more changes in the south than in the north, the soup color tends to be red and bright, and the taste is better. It is found in practice whether the outer packaging of cake and tea is breathable, and it has a great impact on post-fermentation. In the face of the current raw Pu-erh tea market, the raw teas that have been aged for a few years are hard to come by. Tea enthusiasts may wish to take 5 years as a ladder. Drink fresh green tea, master the taste, and save some of them. Tea started to drink, gradually rose, and gradually felt. Although the taste of raw tea within a few years is still far from mellow, but cooked tea can be used to make up for the stalls of aging raw tea, basically there is good Pu-erh tea.
However, raw tea cannot be stored forever, transformed, and old tea stored in the wild, there is no room for transformation forever. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that raw Pu-erh tea has no shelf life, and there is an upper limit on the age of Pu-erh tea. At present, the views on the ageing of raw tea are not uniform. Some say that the upper limit of the ageing of raw tea is 50 years, and some say that it is 100 years. The academic circles have expressed their opinions on the current upper limit of Puer tea storage time, and have not yet reached a conclusion. Some conclusions are also based on practice and there is no direct scientific proof. Theoretically speaking, as long as it is stored, there is a time limit, the storage period is too long, the contents of tea are oxidized, and the drinking value is lost. However, some obsessives praised the taste of storage more than 100-year-old tea and praised it for its “tasteless taste is the ultimate taste”.
Of course, for most tea friends, no one will store raw Pu-erh tea for 50 years or even 100 years before tasting it. Generally, it is stored for ten years or more than ten years. It is already a good tea product, so generally this storage The problem of time limits can be ignored!
