From the experience of tea friends, how can it take more than six years for raw tea to taste good?

The new raw tea tastes fierce, most people dare not drink more, will be stored for several years, with time to precipitate, with years to wake up, until the tea soup becomes smooth, mellow and drink again. It is difficult to give a unified answer as to how many years it takes to start to taste good. Generally, two years of storage is different from the original, but it may take at least six years or more to achieve a good taste.

It should be noted that not only time, but also other factors, such as temperature, humidity, storage environment, packaging conditions and so on, also affect the transformation of raw tea. As far as the same cake tea is concerned, 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. In practice, it is found that whether the outer packaging of cake tea is breathable or not has a great influence on post-fermentation.
Faced with the current Pu'er tea market, the raw tea that has been on display for several years is really rare. Hao tea friends may take six years as a ladder. They may try to drink some of the raw tea that was produced in that year, grasp the taste, save some of their own, save new and old, and then drink it from the six-year old tea, gradually rising and gradually feeling. Although the taste of raw tea in a few years is far from alcohol and alcohol, ripe tea can be used to make up for the break of aging raw tea, and there is basically good Pu'er tea.
Life has tea, enjoy it!
